mallowstreet University Dinner: Navigating the Credit Cycle

Private debt has proven to be compelling to investors seeking higher yields, with a view to capital preservation, and an increasing focus on cash flow profile. But the elongated economic expansion, record capital formation and terms that are highly favourable to corporate borrowers have created a dilemma for allocators. Securing income from credit sectors with greater barriers to entry, while positioning for dislocation in corporate credit can each help investors to navigate the late stage of the current cycle.

mallowstreet University Dinner - PIMCO’s approach to CDI: concept, analysis, construct

Improved funding levels and an increase in cashflow negativity suggest pension schemes have less of a need to invest for growth, and can shift their allocations to meet cashflow needs. Given the increased need to meet cash outflows, forced selling can lead to significant costs if portfolios do not have income-generating assets, raising issues of path dependency. PIMCO want to share our latest research into constructing and managing portfolios that generate contractually-defined cashflows, either through income or maturing assets, to meet cashflow needs. We will discuss the key features of these portfolios along with the challenges associated in managing this type of allocation.
