An Introduction to Business Development Companies

In the hunt for yield, investors are increasingly setting their sights on business development companies (BDCs), which offer stock market investors access to portfolios of private equity investments.

This webinar explored the features that have contributed to the growth in BDCs, underlying asset classes to which BDCs offer investors exposure, and highlighted the key performance metrics for evaluating BDCs.

Our panel discussed relevant regulatory developments affecting BDCs, review the portfolio valuation procedures and assumptions that influence quarterly profits, and explore the relative performance of key market benchmarks.
