Each year we publish our PDI 50 and each year we witness the growing consolidation of the industry. The 2019 list has been no different. This is now our seventh iteration of the ranking, and the third since we expanded the list from 30 to 50 firms.
Who are the biggest private debt firms in 2019?
The PDI 50 tracks all the capital raised by each manager over the past five years through closed-end funds and separately managed accounts.
The trailing five-year fundraising figure for the top 50 firms grew almost 10 percent compared with 2018’s total, with European and Asian firms continuing to make impressive inroads.
