Blackstone aims to expand its European private credit fund, ECRED, by doubling its size within the next year, having already secured €1bn from affluent European investors. Launched in 2022, ECRED strives to match the success of Blackstone's $54bn US fund, BCRED. 


This move aligns with similar initiatives from Goldman Sachs, CVC, and Ares, reflecting a rising interest in private credit investments across Europe. Initially facing regulatory hurdles and cautious investors, Blackstone is now focused on expanding its market reach and adding more distributors. 


ECRED, which invests primarily in private credit assets with a portion in liquid assets, seeks to leverage the thriving $1.7tn market for private corporate loans.

Finsum: Private Credit offers the ability to capture yield in uncorrelated markets and could be helpful for those seeking alternative returns.
