PineBridge to launch mid-market direct lending business

Tuesday, August 29, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Three senior middle market professionals have joined PineBridge Investments (PineBridge) to launch its direct lending business, focusing primarily on US-based middle market companies seeking capital for growth, acquisitions, leveraged buyouts and recapitalizations.

Jim Fisher, a middle market industry veteran, will lead the New York-based Private Credit team, joined by Joe Taylor and Doug Lyons. This team will expand PineBridge's existing $28.5 billion credit platform, which currently includes Bank Loan CLOs, High Yield, as well as a junior capital-focused Structured Capital business. Mr. Fisher and his team have successfully built and led other middle market direct lending platforms over the last 25 years, most recently at Business Development Corp of America.

"Jim and his team are highly regarded in the private credit world and have numerous long term relationships with sponsors, intermediaries and lenders. They will be a great addition to our existing credit platform and will benefit from the Firm's substantial credit research and operational resources," said PineBridge CEO Greg Ehret.
