For today’s 40 or so publicly-traded BDCs, and their non-traded/non-listed counterparts, 2015 is going to be a year of challenges -- Competition from other BDCs and lending sources is making differentiation more and more difficult. Deal valuations are pushing higher and higher. And regulations are making life more complicated. Yet smart private equity firms are continuing to line up to form BDCs. They are a profitable way to benefit from debt strategies. They provide sponsors with long-term access to capital. And retail investors are eager to invest in them. At this encore conference, coming to you from The Capital Roundtable on Thursday, February 26, you’ll hear all-new content designed to help you form your first BDC, expand your current BDC, or launch another BDC. Chairing the conference is David A. R. Dullum, president of Gladstone Investment Corp., an affiliate of McLean, Virginia-based Gladstone Companies, and one of the early entrants in the BDC space.
