On April 16, Lazard’s Tim Donahue, Global Head of Capital Solutions, was featured in a Bloomberg article where he discussed trends in the private capital space. The group was formed in mid-2023 to advise corporate clients, alternative asset managers and PE-owned businesses on financing needs, via debt or structured equity.

In the article, Tim shares with Bloomberg Senior Reporter Gillian Tan a trend he is seeing in private capital where investors are looking to allocate insurance company capital into higher quality companies:

“We have seen a noticeable increase in the demand for investments into high-grade or cross-over cash flowing businesses from the private capital investor base, primarily from their owned or managed pools of insurance capital.” Tim says. “This is a mega-trend in financing that is only picking up momentum.”

The article continues with Tim highlighting where Lazard’s Capital Solutions group is focusing its time, mega-trends in the industry, and where the next financial innovations are likely to take place.
