Hear our expert insights on global debt and the current state of markets.

With government bond yields at historical lows and looking to stay that way for the foreseeable future, investors looking for yield are being pushed to consider alternative options when seeking income.

Barwon Investment Partners has been investing in listed private debt funds since 2007 as part of its Global Listed Private Equity strategy and has managed a dedicated Fund investing in listed private debt, the Barwon Global High Income Fund, since February 2014. The listed private debt funds in which Barwon invests make senior secured, hold-to-maturity loans to US middle market businesses and provide loans backed by stable commercial properties.
