Following the Global Financial Crisis, there were limited alternatives to banks for Australian companies aiming to access financing. As one of the leading non-bank lenders in Australia, Metrics directly originates loans to Australian companies right across the risk spectrum. Through their managed funds, they provide unrivalled access to the highly attractive Australian private debt market to investors ranging from individuals to global institutions.

Metrics believes Australian corporate loans provide superior risk-adjusted returns compared with other investment options. They drive portfolio diversity by investing across the credit spectrum, capital structure, borrowers, industries, and debt products. Their scale enables them to participate alongside syndicate banks or meet borrowers’ needs on their own. As an agile and independent non-bank lender, their philosophy is to work collaboratively with companies and deliver debt solutions to help them realise their business goals.

In this Fund in Focus, Andrew Lockhart, Managing Partner at Metrics Credit Partners, discusses the benefits of an investment in Australian corporate loans, shares the importance of portfolio diversification, and demonstrates how this can offer downside protection.
