Debtwire launches Funds Data platform to change the way direct lending professionals access information

London, United Kingdom, 15 October 2019: Debtwire, the leading provider of expert news, data and analysis on debt markets worldwide, today announced the launch of the new Funds Data platform. With data that goes back to 2009, Funds Data provides users with extensive global coverage of over 400 funds active in the fast-growing direct lending sector.

 

The database tracks funds from pre-marketing, all the way through close, and provides valuable insight into fund strategy and dry powder, while fund performance is displayed through Internal Rate of Return (IRRs) and money multiples.

 

The fund profiles identify hundreds of institutional investors active in the asset class and the size of their commitments to each fund. The data points are sourced from primary documents, a vast network of market relationships and trusted intelligence across Acuris’ fixed income division.

 

The Funds Data platform focuses on allowing users to perform a deeper analysis of the funds by identifying the following:

  • Leverage at the fund level
  • Management fees
  • Separately managed accounts other opaque structures

 

From enabling private equity sponsors to easily identify private debt funds in the market to helping institutional investors find more details on fund performance, the platform will be transformational for the industry.

 

“The Funds Data platform will change how professionals in the direct lending space gain access to the information they need,” said Paul Tilt, Head of Funds Research at Debtwire. “Complemented by our trusted editorial coverage, the database is designed for ease of use and updated in real-time by our team of experts, allowing users to quickly export custom searches to get a full picture of the market.”

 

As the latest data offering from Debtwire, the platform complements content from the Debtwire Par primary issuance database, providing subscribers with a unique user journey from manager, fund, to investments completed. It also supports the quarterly direct lending reports produced by Debtwire and its sister product, Creditflux, European Direct Lending Perspectives and US Private Credit Perspectives. The analysis, put together by a team of experts, includes fundraising data, direct lending league tables and interviews from prominent industry figures.
