As the economy begins to slowly open up again following lockdowns, it's likely that private capital markets might see a growth in distressed debt for the foreseeable future.

In this Private Equity Wire podcast, we catch up with PD expert John Clifford, co-head of the UK private debt team at Muzinich & Co, to talk about some of the reasons why private debt is currently taking market share away from banks and how the private debt market is evolving. 

We also cover the fact that small companies that would in the past have been more of a VC target might instead look to private debt in the current environment, Clifford’s view on the growth trajectory of UK private debt financing domestic SMEs and the overall role of private debt in the post-Covid global economic recovery.
