About this page
Distressed debt is always one of private debt’s most popular strategies but, in 2022, it’s attracting more attention than usual. Financial support offered by governments during the covid pandemic is being withdrawn, inflationary pressures are set to take their toll on company balance sheets, and many firms are struggling with staff shortages. In this environment, stress is likely to emerge and the low default rate seen in recent years will almost certainly rise. Given these factors, we are doubling down on our coverage of distressed debt and offer our readers the opportunity on this page to explore key stories, news analysis and features.
