Interest in Private Credit Remains Strong, According to ACC/PCFI Survey

The Alternative Credit Council (ACC), an affiliate of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), in collaboration with Private Credit Fund Intelligence (PCFI), recently issued the results of their survey of private credit (PC) investors’ appetite in the second half of 2021 for alternative investments in general and PC in particular. Notably, ACC/PCFI found that demand for PC remains strong, with the overwhelming majority of respondents satisfied with the performance of PC investments in the first half of this year and more than one-third planning to increase allocations going forward. This article examines the survey’s key findings, with commentary from James Sivyer, head of investor research at PCFI Insights, and Nick Smith, director of PC at the ACC.
