Compelling Insights Predicting a More Diverse Future

To better demonstrate how the DEI movement is gaining momentum, we examine how private credit firms have progressed in diversity
For years, private credit has lagged behind nearly every other alternative asset class in nearly every measure of DEI. As recently as Q3 of 2021, we were asking, ‘why are private credit firms failing to measure up on diversity?
