Antares video: Looking ahead to 2018

Antares’ John Martin and Vivek Mathew discuss what characterised 2017 in the private debt world and the ongoing importance of diversity in a credit manager’s portfolio.

2017 was a strong year for M&A and was also a year marked by a competitive deal environment.

Credit spreads loosened and leveraged went up, but there were some positive aspects, said Antares managing partner and co-CEO John Martin and the managing director and head of structured products Vivek Mathew.
