Asset Growth at US Leveraged Loan Funds Stalls Amid Market Jitters

US leveraged loan fund AUM

The 2018 surge in asset growth at U.S. loan funds ground to a halt in October, with AUM increasing by a thin $360 million, down from $2.86 billion in September and from the roughly $3 billion average during the first nine months of the year, according to LCD and Lipper.

The October activity leaves loan fund AUM at $184.1 billion.

That’s the tenth straight month in which a record was set for the asset class, but is an obvious downshift in the face of a now-volatile equities market and relative blizzard of mainstream financial press headlines—accompanied by stories with varying levels of sophistication—urging caution where leveraged loans are concerned. – Staff reports
