The Alternative Credit Council (ACC) is pleased to be returning to New York for our second US private credit Summit.
The 2018 Summit brought together over 200 attendees from the private credit lending space representing a breadth of strategies and viewpoints on the current market.
This year’s Summit will focus on the growth and success challenges for private credit in 2020 and beyond. The event will take place at Convene, 75 Rockefeller Plaza and will provide private credit managers, investors, service providers and regulators the opportunity to discuss the future of private credit as this market continues to grow.

Specialty finance, special situations lending and asset backed lending are some of the strategies associated with the adjective special.

This panel will consider these questions and how to best communicate distinctiveness to investors.

Financing the Economy
The ACC will be launching the 5th edition of our annual Financing the Economy research at the Summit. To mark the 5th anniversary of this seminal research series, the ACC has interviewed 25 leading industry figures on the key growth challenges for their businesses and potential market headwinds. Their on-record comments will be revealed exclusively at the Summit alongside data gathered from our global survey of private credit managers.
Diversity and Inclusion Breakfast
In advance of the Summit, the ACC will be hosting a diversity and inclusion breakfast in the venue. The objective of the breakfast is to bring together leading industry figures to reflect on the importance of diversity and inclusion in private credit and to understand how the ACC can support positive change. We will also discuss issues related to lending to minority owner/women owned businesses and associated policies which are being developed in this area by governments.
