In this latest podcast in the Spotlight series, we turn our attention to distressed debt. The strategy has been popular with investors in recent years, and the “dislocation” funds that were raised in the early months of last year brought a renewed focus to it. But, buoyed by government support schemes, many businesses that may have floundered have instead been kept afloat – at least for the foreseeable future. Andy Thomson and Kyle Campbell ask what this means for the future of distressed debt investment in a discussion moderated by Chase Collum.
