Invesco Current bank headlines a potential tailwind for direct lending

The events of the last few weeks have elevated focus on the banking industry and its perceived role as primary financier to companies across the globe. Despite swift and strong efforts by government agencies and central banks to boost confidence and quell liquidity concerns, the collapses of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank as well as UBS’ purchase of Credit Suisse have intensified fears of a global banking crisis. The natural question for many institutional investors is how do these recent events impact private credit, including direct lending?
