Direct lending is receiving significant institutional interest due to its attractive potential return and moderate risk. Though illiquid, direct lending portfolios provide immediate cash flow with little or none of the J-curve effects associated with private equity. Cliffwater Direct Lending Index (“CDLI”) was introduced as a research tool to advance the study of direct lending as an asset class and as a benchmark to evaluate the performance of direct lending managers.
For this data source, RIMES hosts approximately 40 companies and two indexes (Cliffwater Direct Lending Index).
