The Case for Senior Loans

Looking back throughout 2023 so far, there has been a significant focus on the uncertainty of the US macroeconomic backdrop and its potential implications for the senior secured bank loan market. Paramount among these concerns are three key questions:

  1. How are underlying issuers able to handle inflation pressures and will they be able to pass along increased costs
    to their consumers?
  2. Where are we in the interest rate cycle and how will this affect issuers?
  3. What effect will a potential recession have on issuers?

This piece provides our view on the current market environment and attempts to answer these critical questions.
