We offer a Corporate Private Placement strategy that seeks to originate high quality private debt with enhanced yield potential and diversification characteristics. We offer managed accounts customized to each client’s unique needs or circumstances. Our clients’ investments can be tailored to a wide range of maturities as well as to diversification by risk, country, sector and currency, and structured as fixed and/or floating rate debt.

Why Corporate Private Placements

Diversification: Issuers and/or structures that generally are not available in the public markets 

Downside Protection: Financial covenants and/or collateral, which seek to provide protection and may be especially important in a deteriorating credit environment

Economics: Historical spread and incremental income opportunities

Asset/Liability Management: May offer call protection and flexible maturity profiles


Our corporate private placement philosophy is based on the mantra: “credit, structure, pricing.” Our philosophy is to invest in credits whose transactions we feel are well structured, properly priced and have sufficient relative value compared to other investment opportunities.

We are active in sourcing transactions directly from borrowers as well as through our agent bank relationships. As a major industry player, having a broad possible universe of investment opportunities allows us to be selective in choosing the right deals in which to invest.


  • Rigorous credit analysis to facilitate the selection of credits we feel have appropriate structures, robust protections, and attractive relative value
  • Utilize MetLife Investment Management's size and presence to seek access to new deals and receive favorable allocations. Often able to customize deal terms and structures
  • Construct portfolios of investments tailored to meet client needs across sectors, maturities and credit quality
