Join us as we discuss the outlook for the 2023-2024 credit cycle and learn about the evolving opportunities across the public and private credit markets. We are excited to hear from Jason Friedman, Partner, Investment Committee Member & Global Head of Business Development at Marathon Asset Management, which is a $20B+ AUM investment management firm focused on opportunistic investing in credit and fixed income markets globally.
Persistent inflation and higher interest rates have created significant challenges for companies, corporate earnings outlook, and creditworthiness. The Federal Reserve, along with central banks abroad, have embarked upon a policy path of tightening financial conditions to fight inflation, collectively raising rates at the most aggressive pace in recent history. With higher interest rates and wider credit spreads, the cost of capital has begun to constrict issuer cash flow generation, dampen valuations, and limit refinancing prospects.
This credit cycle will be defined by a recession with persistent inflation that Marathon Asset Management expects will result in an enormous multi-faceted opportunity to deploy capital in both the private credit markets and dislocated secondary credit investments in the public credit markets.
Marathon’s view is informed by a number of key themes that we look forward to covering. To encourage a more insightful and active conversation, we encourage attendees to review a thoughtful whitepaper that Marathon has released, which can be found HERE.
