The Alternative Lender community is becoming increasingly relevant for European mid-market companies. In 2014 we saw activity strengthening from Alternative Lenders, in particular with the success of the unitranche product. As expected, this trend continued through 2015 and into 2016, against a backdrop of a strongly improving economic outlook
Our Debt Advisory team has been in active dialogue with the leading European Alternative Lenders to set up a quarterly database, which monitors the primary European mid-market deal activity involving these lenders. 42 alternative debt funds currently participate in the Deloitte Alternative Lender Deal Tracker and the results are released to interested parties on a quarterly basis in a public version of the tracker.
