  • Lüth said Raisin is working on developing EFTs with passive fund giant Vanguard while Aikens said Prodigy Finance is looking at different fund structures very closely.
  • Newsome said that two forms of private debt have sprung up. First is $850bn and more mid market private equity based and the second is platform based lending being $50-100bn. He added that a type of ‘fund of platforms’ could happen soon to help the latter grow.
  • Ramaekers said Aegon are planning a long run investment in the private credit space but that it can takes a while before actually buying the first loan in a platform. “It was a year before we deployed money after first meeting Funding Circle for the first time,” he said.
