Private Debt

Exclusive access for professional investors to Private Debt, focusing on small- and mid-sized companies in Germany and Europe: from senior loans to Unitranche

The ODDO BHF group has a long and successful history in corporate lending and is a trusted partner for German businesses. Following this tradition, the group further broadened its product and service portfolio via an engagement of its ODDO BHF Asset Management division in the Private Debt market. It supplies tailored financing packages to mainly German small- and midsized companies in a partnership approach to account for various capital needs.

A first fund, focusing on these roots and building the basis for the new Private Debt platform under the ODDO BHF AM brand, has recently been set-up. This strategy available through a closed-end alternative investment fund registered in Luxembourg targets a fund volume of € 300m. The fund recently completed its first successful closing and is still open to new investors.

Through this initial strategy, we support mainly German small- and mid-sized companies with a financing need of above € 5.0m. The financing solutions offered to professionals can hereby vary between different structures and purposes from senior secured loans to Unitranche.

The diversified investment portfolio may include various financing solutions which can cover the complete needs of small- and mid-sized companies, e.g.:

  1. Private Equity backed transactions
  2. Corporate M&A
  3. Refinancing
  4. Capex lines
  5. Growth financing

The ODDO BHF Private Debt team consists of five members with several years of relevant experience in the field of private capital. The team has gained deep knowledge in the execution of transactions within the German small- and mid-sized sector.
