European Senior Lending

Pemberton's European Mid-Market Debt strategy invests in leading mid-market companies across Europe. The strategy focuses on mid-market borrowers within the five largest European economies of Germany, UK, France, Italy and Spain. The aim is to develop long-term relationships with stable businesses and provide borrowers with acquisition and growth capital. The strategy provides institutional investors with a risk-adjusted return from a diversified pan-European debt portfolio.


The strategy focuses on investments in senior secured loans:

  • First ranking seniority to provide structural protection
  • Financial covenants to limit downside risk
  • Cash coupons to provide a regular income stream


The strategy is managed by Portfolio Manager: Mark Hickey.

Pemberton closed the European Mid-Market Debt Fund I in November 2016 with commitments of €1.2bn and we are currently raising assets for the strategy.
