Private credit as its name suggests is credit that is negotiated privately to fund companies seeking capital for projects or other ventures. It is not publicly traded and takes various legal forms including loans, bonds and/or notes. Private credit or private debt fits into the broad category of alternative investments. Its strategies include real estate debt, distressed debt, direct lending, mezzanine financing and structured financing.

Private equity refers to funds that are directly invested in non-exchange listed private companies. Private equity may target public companies in buyouts to take them private. Private equity fits in the broad category of alternative investments.

The basic physical structures and essential services required by a business or nation – transportation, communication, sewage, water and electric systems are all examples of infrastructure. Projects related to infrastructure improvements may be funded publicly, privately or through public-private partnerships (PPP).

An alternative investment is any investment that is not simply a buy-and-hold position in traditional financial instruments, such as stocks and bonds. There are essentially four categories of alternative investments:

  1. Real assets: these are investments involving direct ownership of tangible assets like real estate, infrastructure, farmland or even pieces of art.
  2. Private debt: investments that provide direct lending to businesses.
  3. Private equity: investments that provide capital to companies through acquisition of ownership interest.
  4. Hedge funds: investments in a wide range of financial instruments, including stocks and bonds, but using a variety of complex investment strategies to generate higher returns.

Most alternative investment assets are held by institutional investors or accredited, high-net-worth individuals because of their complex nature, lack of regulation, and degree of risk.

MBI’s fundamental and bottom-up research provides visibility into a stock’s return potential. Risks are also measured and mitigated where we do not add value. Our ESG approach is firmly rooted in each step of our process.

The analysis of ESG factors is integrated in our fundamental research. Negative filters are applied such as tobacco, weapons, gambling, adult entertainment and alcohol. Our approach is supported by the belief that ESG analysis in the investment decision process offers opportunities for long-term value creation for both investors and society as a whole.
