In the recent years, debt has clearly become a very attractive class of assets on the radar screen of many investors. It is therefore important to get a clear understanding of what debt funds are, how they can be structured and how to administrate them.

This module is part of our Debt Funds Training curriculum made of 6 complementary building blocks:

  • Debt funds: current market and trends
  • Debt funds: accounting considerations
  • Debt funds: risk management, governance and best market practices/hot topics
  • Debt funds: valuation overview
  • Debt funds: tax and regulatory impacts
  • Debt funds: investors reporting (tax and regulatory)

By the end of this course, participants will be able to understand the best market practices for private debt products as well as the future development of the market in terms of product and regulation.


Background: the continuously increasing level of expectation from EU and national regulators require robust and sustainable governance process.

This module presents the best market practices as well as the different evolution that are shortly coming into play.
