New investment directors help Metrics Credit Partners expand into private credit market
Two investment directors have joined Metrics Credit Partners to continue their expansion into the private credit market.
Julia Humphries joins the organisation from UBS in New York where she was the executive director of leveraged loan capital markets. Prior to that Humphries was involved in corporate credit risks with Goldman Sachs.
Humphries is joined by Nicholas Thomas.
Metrics managing partner, Andrew Lockhart, said the new appointments would support the company's expansion into the private credit market. "As banks continue to face increasing regulatory pressure, they will no longer be the natural lenders to Australian corporates," said Lockhart. "This is where Metrics can help corporate borrowers and debt capital, as well as providing both wholesale and retail investors with stable and reliable sources of income."
Since 2013, Metrics has lent in excess of $7 billion in more than 250 transactions.
