The Alternative Credit Council (ACC) held its Global Virtual Summit 2021 on 20 & 21 April. The performance of private credit during the past twelve months has offered a robust response to those who questioned how it would weather a downturn. The Summit explored the key challenges and opportunities for private credit and whether its resilience will withstand these tests throughout 2021. We has convened LPs, GPs and industry specialists representing the full breadth of the asset class to discuss the key questions that will determine the success of the asset class through the current crisis.
The audience included private credit managers, investors, service providers and regulators.
The ACC Global Virtual Summit 2021 took place over two days at times that enabled the participation of a global audience and faciliated on-demand viewing.

Day 1: 20 April
The blurring of par lending, stressed, special situations, bridge financing and distressed debt opportunities means there is greater demand for a flexible approach to investing. How can private credit managers and investors build fund structures that maximise flexibility, while guarding against scope creep and inefficiency?
