    Finding infrastructure-related returns in a risky environment
    Emmanuel Deblanc, Head of Resilient Credit, and Nadia Nikolova, Portfolio Manager Infrastructure Debt Recorded: Jun 22 2018 9 mins
    As banks continue to focus on shorter-term lending, a gap has emerged within the medium-term private financing space. This enables Allianz Resilient Credit to match institutional investors, looking for medium-term reliable income, with the borrowing needs of companies that exhibit resilient business models and are capable of delivering robust gross margins.



    Emmanuel Deblanc, Head of Resilient Credit, and Nadia Nikolova, Portfolio Manager Infrastructure Debt, discuss medium-term infrastructure credit, the characteristics of this strategy, why this strategy is relevant for institutional investors and where it sits within a portfolio allocation.

    Beyond Core Infrastructure Debt: inside Core-plus Investing & Resilient Credit
    Emmanuel Deblanc, Head of Resilient Credit, & Margaret Frost, Head of Institutional UK. Recorded: May 22 2018 47 mins
    Over five years ago, Allianz Global Investors was one of the first movers in Europe matching institutional investors with long-term infrastructure financing. Since then, they have continued innovating, recently launching a core-plus investment strategy called Allianz Resilient Credit. This type of strategy appeals to institutional investors looking for stable and reliable medium-term income (7-12 years) with wider spreads than those found in core infrastructure debt and superior returns to that of public market debt.

    Emmanuel Deblanc, Head of Resilient Credit, will discuss:

    • How extracting value through upstream origination demands human and capital resources
    • Why ‘resilient’ means conservative secured loans across the capital structure, i.e. senior, junior and hybrid
    • How the “illiquidity premium” is captured: how much is available and how it is secured by the team
