Business development companies -- known as BDCs -- have become more and more compelling, not only as providers of capital to middle-market companies, but also as business opportunities for private equity and other alternative asset firms that want to expand their assets under management.
This special type of closed-end fund provides growing companies with increased access to capital, and enables private equity firms to access the public capital markets.
If you’re among the many dozens of private equity firms, mezzanine
funds, SBICs, and other alternative asset managers looking at
sponsoring a BDC…
If you’re part of a professional services firm that works with BDCs…
The Capital Roundtable is ready to help you move forward with all your
need‑to‑know information, gathered into one conference.
Attending this conference can be critical to your success with the BDC model. The rules of the game are complex. The procedures are neither obvious nor easy. And many of the rules and regulations can be interpreted in multiple ways.
With a limited number of business development companies currently formed and on file, there is no substitute for learning how to operate in the BDC space from people who know the ins and outs. This conference from The Capital Roundtable will cover both sides of the spectrum.
Traditional BDCs are publicly traded, with shares listed on one or more national exchanges and with a full complement of SEC filings. Today’s top 32 actively traded BDCs have over $29 billion in assets under management.
More recently, Non-Traded BDCs have emerged -- using a structure similar to non-traded REITs where capital is raised in a continuous private offering, which eliminates market price volatility but creates less liquid securities.
So if you do one thing today that could have lasting impact on your
assets under management, reserve Thursday, May 3, so you can attend
our brand-NEW conference on “Best Practices for Launching &
Managing a BDC.”
And by registering by March 23, you can take advantage of our special
Early Bird Rate -- a generous savings of $400!

20 BDC Experts Help You Understand The BDC Phenomenon.
To chair this important event, we’re delighted to welcome James K. Hunt, Chairman, CEO, and CIO of THL Credit and THL Credit Advisors in Boston -- a BDC targeting middle‑market companies with annual revenues of between $25 million and $500 million that require capital for growth and acquisition.
Jim has extensive experience providing capital for both public and private middle-market companies across most industries. Before founding THL Credit, he was managing partner and CEO of Bison Capital Asset Management LLC, a middle-market growth equity firm he co-founded in 2001. Previously, he was president of SunAmerica Corporate Finance and an executive vice president of AIG SunAmerica, managing an asset portfolio of over $8 billion.
Prior to that Jim worked at Citicorp for over 14 years, where he held a variety of leveraged lending, credit, and finance positions, culminating in the role of senior credit officer and vice president/area head for the Far West U.S. leveraged lending group. He serves on the board of directors of Lender Processing Services, and formerly for Financial Pacific Leasing, Primus Guaranty, Mobile Storage Group and other firms. Jim earned a BBA in economics from the University of Texas at El Paso and an MBA in finance and accounting from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Graduate School of Business.
Along with Jim, our keynote presentation and four revealing panel discussions will feature 20 knowledgeable business development company specialists who will share their real-world perspectives, lessons learned, and industry outlooks, including insights on mastering this alternative source of capital.
You’ll discover why so many are saying BDCs will become a dominant provider of middle market capital in the near future. Certainly the markets have been highly supportive of BDCs this year -- even in a lukewarm environment, BDCs have raised about $450 million for follow on offerings and $100 million in debt deals.
We’ll also cover how many firms are pursuing multiple BDCs -- such as one for mezzanine financing and a second for senior financing.
And we’ll explain why you have every reason to get on file today -- even when the market window is less open, you can still get through the SEC process and be ready when the market is.
Take Advantage Of Our Excellent Networking Opportunities.
Like all conferences from The Capital Roundtable, this all-NEW event will bring you face to face with the people you want to meet.
