About Tilburg Institute for Private Debt
Private Debt is a fast growing asset class. Fundraising has exceeded USD 100 billion for the past years, outpacing both private equity and closed-end real estate fund growth. Its annual returns average around 11 percent and make this new asset class an attractive proposition to more and more investors.
Moreover, private debt funds are filling financing gaps related to mid-market and sponsored corporate financing transactions. Increasingly, such transactions require speed and flexibility but also contract structures avoided by banks. Private debt is thus also progressively used by entrepreneurial companies in the form of venture debt.
Despite its importance in corporate financing and its establishment as a new asset class, research in private debt is very sparse. TiPD aims to close this research gap and provide an open platform to promote research, education and networking, in the important field of private debt.
