MV Credit’s View on Cov-Lite Loans

The main focus of a private debt manager should be capital preservation. MV Credit believes that even the best documentation and structure cannot make up for a bad credit.

The main focus of a private debt manager should be capital preservation. MV Credit believes that even the best documentation and structure cannot make up for a bad credit. A fund’s investment strategy (such as a focus on non-cyclical industries) and loan documentation should consistently be reviewed in anticipation of economic cyclicality, whether in an up or down market, not in reaction to ongoing events. MV Credit believes the right approach to investing is strong origination, active monitoring and partnering with the right private equity sponsor.

Integrating ESG risks in private debt

Strong case for including non-financial information in investment decisions

ESG is desirable both from a moral and ethical viewpoint, and also from a risk-return standpoint. Management of ESG risk has been shown in many academic and asset management practitioner studies to reduce losses, particularly in longer-term investments.
