King & Spalding Launches Mobile App to Help Lenders Navigate the Private Credit Market


NEW YORK, February 3, 2021 — King & Spalding today announced the launch of its Private Credit & Special Situations Investing Hub mobile app, called The Hub, which will provide lenders with exclusive, user-generated information about the private credit and special situations investing market.

The Hub will contain timely information and market intelligence through its key feature, an interactive survey, as well as exclusive articles, case studies, and analysis.

“There continues to be tremendous growth in the private credit markets as a result of strong investor interest, anticipated scrutiny by the regulators on banking institutions, and the flexibility private credit funds have to provide structures that are appealing to private equity sponsors,” said King & Spalding partner Jenn Daly, who spearheaded The Hub’s development. “As a result, we created The Hub to provide lenders a resource that contains real-time information on market trends that will help them both mitigate risk and maximize value and market share.”

The Hub offers a range of interactive features, allowing users to submit responses to regular surveys, consisting of several questions, as well as to spontaneous single survey questions. The subject of the first survey is trends in middle market financings. Responses are kept anonymous and are available real-time, allowing users to see what others in the private credit and special situations investing space are seeing.

Users will be able to access exclusive articles, such as practice pointers for lenders looking to better understand common provisions in credit documents and guidance on how to think about questions often confronted by lenders, and case studies about noteworthy transactions and trends in the market.

The Hub can be downloaded to your mobile device from the Apple or Android app store.
