In the past 15 years, private lending in the United States has advanced significantly. In 2007, high-net-worth investments and debt funds provided most of the industry’s funding through multi-lender direct investments. Many consider these tactics outdated in today’s “institutionalized” and “commoditized” industrial environment. Despite this paradigm shift in the IndustryIndustry, private lenders who have maintained a robust capital base generated from independent, committed capital have experienced considerable, long-term success. In 2020, the sector underwent stress testing. Rising rates, inflation, and negative GDP growth in 2022 are all signs that a recession is either just beginning or is already underway.

The foundation of a successful, long-lasting private lending firm has always been debt funds. The most significant advantage of this approach is that it keeps private lenders in business even if the secondary market shuts down. Institutional capital in the lending sector is less reliable than in traditional business because there are no governmental organizations. The necessity for the secondary market to respond has been a significant factor in the private lending sector’s high volatility after the most recent Federal Reserve rate increase.

Many private lenders understand the benefits of using investors they can manage for their balance sheet strategy. Despite there perhaps being less capital, this permits the lender to carry on with business as usual. Additionally, private lenders with established debt funds have profited from market possibilities during a correction. As rates start to escalate, default and foreclosure rates will undoubtedly increase. Private lenders will take advantage of these opportunities with the money and other discretionary capital structures, opening up fresh opportunities for rescue loans, property acquisition, or refinancing.
