Emmanuel Deblanc, Head of Resilient Credit, & Margaret Frost, Head of Institutional UK.
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
