What are European leveraged loans?

In Europe, leveraged loans typically arise in conjunction with a private equity-sponsored ‘Leveraged Buy-Out’. They offer a high, floating rate of interest with security over a company’s assets, a priority position in the capital structure and a free prepayment option for the borrowing company. While not always publicly-rated, leveraged loans would typically have a sub-investment grade equivalent rating.

We have a long track record of investing in European leveraged loans and aim to offer investors access to this specialist, private asset class.

Why invest in leveraged loans?

At M&G, we believe loans to be an attractive investment, with the potential to provide:

  • High LIBOR-linked returns
  • Downside protection from security and first-ranking position
  • Generally more stable than public market

Our history of investing in leveraged loans

M&G was one of the first investors in leveraged loans and is one of the largest loan managers in the European market. We first started investing on behalf of the Prudential Group, in 1999, and now manage pooled and segregated funds for institutional investors on behalf of the M&G plc group across the UK, Europe and Asia.
