$2 trillion Private Credit Opportunity Eyed by Marathon

Marathon Asset Management, a $23 billion asset manager, is expanding its private credit team as it looks to position itself for upcoming market turmoil.

The firm is eyeing a $2 trillion opportunity in private lending by offering direct lending to firms backed by private equity. Marathon’s move comes as it joins the rush into private credit ahead of the “refinancing wall.

According to Bloomberg News, Marathon’s expansion into private lending is part of the firm’s strategy to closely partner with sponsors and provide reliable and flexible direct lending solutions to companies.

The firm is excited to amplify its direct lending capabilities and expand its presence in the private credit market.

With the “refinancing wall” looming, more private equity firms are turning to private credit as a way to finance their portfolio companies.

Marathon’s expansion into private lending allows it to offer a competitive alternative to traditional bank financing and position itself as a leader in the private credit market.
