Analyzing Credit Fund Investing Opportunities

Recently came across a role (missed the boat on the application) that was focused on credit fund investments throughout various strategies (private lending, distressed, special situations). The role entails investing in credit funds, meeting with fund managers, diligence on credit fund strategy, monitoring past investments. 

Hoping to open the floor to anyone with any experience in this type of role to provide an understanding of how one goes about:

  • understanding a credit fund
  • assessing a fund manager
  • modelling cash flows of various credit fund strategies (i.e, how does do cash flows from a distressed fund differ form a special situations fund)
  • assessing risk levels
  • implementing risk models
  • any other tasks/responsibilities at the junior level

Cheers!
