Real Estate Private Credit in the GCC

Charles Russell Speechlys are delighted to have partnered with Advice Re Capital to produce a white paper on ‘Real Estate Private Credit in the GCC - Q2 2023’.

Investors are increasingly concerned about inflation and rising interest rates and are looking for some form of yield to enhance portfolio returns. This need is further exacerbated by the pandemic induced volatility of the stock and bond markets. For an everincreasing number of investors, this search leads them to the world of private credit.

Leading up to 2020, private credit emerged as the rising star among alternative investors. Though not as large as hedge funds or private equity, its growth trajectory in the decade following the 2008 financial crisis outpaced other alternative investment sectors, strengthened by demand from both borrowers and investors.

Private credit remains heavily undeveloped outside of North America and Europe. For investors looking to diversify outside of these regions and gain exposure to emerging markets, an early move into a rapidly growing debt market could be the key to securing superior returns. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) could be the place to access the kind of rapid growth experienced in western economies over the past decade, with the real estate sector a clear standout candidate for private credit.

Key takeaways from the white paper include:

  • Private Credit rise in the global arena;
  • The contrast of private credit and bank debt;
  • Advantages of private credit;
  • Type of private credit strategies;
  • GCC private credit landscape;
  • GCC real estate landscape; and
  • Potential products to deploy private credit in the GCC
