WATCH: Perfect match: finding the ideal fund finance solution

by Alice Murray 21 December 2020

Alice Murray sat down with Mohith Sondhi of OakNorth Bank and Emilio Di Spiezio Sardo of Bluegem Capital Partners to find out about a recent subscription line facility. 

While fund finance is ubiquitous across the private capital fund market, 2020 has catalysed the use and need of these facilities, as well as more innovative products including hybrid and NAV loans.

Given the turbulent market conditions, it has never been more important to secure the ‘perfect’ lending partner; one that can offer much needed flexibility, a bespoke solution, as well as support and deep understanding in order to weather the coming months and years.

This webinar heard from both the lender and fund perspectives as to what each was looking for in their ideal partner. We discussed how BlueGem determined their funding needs and what they were looking for in a lender. And how OakNorth assessed the management team, track records and portfolio companies. The panellists also discussed the various fund finance solutions available in the current market, and which kinds of managers and portfolios they are best suited to.
