The focus of the strategy is on the underserved lower-risk senior segment, investing in defensive, differentiated and high growth business models that are well positioned through the credit cycle. The investments to date have been diversified across industries and geographically spread across the UK. The strategy integrates ESG factors throughout the investment process.

HSBC AM’s UK Direct Lending team raised USD1.1 billion for the first vintage of the strategy and associated mandates, and has already committed over 80% of the capital.
