Private Credit

Private credit represents part of the broader alternative investment universe, referring to non-traditional assets relying to some degree on an illiquidity risk premium to help drive excess returns. Our global expertise in private credit covers a broad spectrum, from opportunistic and distressed debt, to middle market investing, and specialty finance.

Cyclical and secular changes in credit markets drive investment opportunities. Private credit assets may help provide diversification benefits, yield enhancement, and additional capital deployment opportunities relative to similar public assets. BlackRock currently manages USD 14 billion in Private Credit AUM* across the platform as of 30 June 2018.

*includes client assets and committed capital.

Capital at risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of the investment and the income from it will vary and the initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.
