HarbourVest Partners Announces Close of Direct Lending Fund

Share

HarbourVest Partners, a global private markets asset manager, today announced the final close of its HarbourVest Direct Lending Fund (HDL) at over $892 million in limited partner commitments, including the General Partner commitment. The Fund was oversubscribed and closed above the target size of $600 million. This close follows the firm’s final close of Credit Opportunities Fund II, HarbourVest’s junior credit offering, earlier this year.

“We are pleased to mark the final close of our inaugural, dedicated direct lending fund, bringing our total capital under management for credit investments to over $3.3 billion*,” said John Toomey, Managing Director, HarbourVest Partners. “The past year has demonstrated the resilience of the asset class and reinforced our objective to broaden the reach of HarbourVest’s solutions to help clients invest in rapidly growing strategies.”

The Fund targets senior credit investments in private equity-backed middle-market companies, predominantly in North America. The Fund seeks to build a diversified portfolio including first lien, unitranche, and second lien debt that provides investors with consistent cash yield and strong downside protection.

“HarbourVest’s credit platform differentiates itself in the marketplace through our proprietary sourcing engine, which is driven by the breadth and depth of our primary and secondary partnerships,” said Karen Simeone, Managing Director, HarbourVest Partners. “Private credit deal flow continues to accelerate, propelled by increased private equity deal activity and by sponsors increasingly choosing the flexibility and certainty of execution that private financings offer versus the syndicated loan market.”

The Fund was supported by limited partners in North America, Australia, Israel, Europe, and Latin America including public and private pension funds, insurance companies, endowments, family offices, and ultra-high net worth private sector investors.

*As of August 31, 2021. Reflects total capital raised plus leverage expected to be available across the HarbourVest Private Credit platform.
