Developments in the Private Credit Sector
Over the past few years, many developments have been witnessed in the private credit sector. Some the developments include the changes that have been done in the regulatory guidance that was implemented after the 2008 financial crisis. The changes that were done in regulatory guidance have caused the backs to stop lending money to private investors. This was triggered by the information in the regulatory guidance that needed banks to be more careful when lending money to private investors. There have also been challenges that are related to public companies. The rampant scandals in public companies that have led to large sums of money being lost have also led to banks being reluctant to lend money to public parties.
All these changes that were made in the regulatory guidance have made it difficult for private investors to borrow money from banks. Gareth Henry having worked for so long in the private credit sector knew that this was going to affect the future of private companies. That is why he decided to step in order to assist private investors. Gareth Henry also understands all the necessary calculations that are involved in the private credit sector and it will be difficult to lend money to a company that won’t be able to pay back under his watch.
