AF Advisors’ director Martine Vissers published an article in Financial Investigator about the private debt market.

In the article, Martine discusses the recent developments of private debt funds and provides insight in these differences, as well as the developments and investment opportunities in private debt of small enterprises and medium sized companies.

"The current low-interest-rate environment is causing a search for yield for investors. New investment propositions are explored and private debt is gaining interest."
