Morgan Stanley Private Credit

Capabilities: Private Credit & Equity


The Morgan Stanley Private Credit team seeks to create value as a long-term partner for financial sponsors and companies throughout an investment’s life-cycle. The team’s experienced professionals have extensive industry relationships and significant expertise in investment origination, deal structuring, credit analysis and principal investing in the leveraged finance markets.

We seek to take a cooperative role with management throughout the term of our investment and to structure financings consistent with the portfolio company’s strategic and financial objectives.   

Private Credit also leverages the brand and unparalleled global network of Morgan Stanley to source investment intelligence and opportunities and to deliver the full breadth and depth of resources that the firm has to offer to our portfolio companies.


We believe the continued demand for capital creates a dynamic in the middle market for leveraged credit that is less amenable to issuers, and more favorable to investors, especially versus the traditional credit markets.

Alternative investments are speculative and include a high degree of risk. Investors could lose all or a substantial amount of their investment. Alternative investments are suitable only for long-term investors willing to forego liquidity and put capital at risk for an indefinite period of time. Alternative investments are typically highly illiquid – there is no secondary market for private funds, and there may be restrictions on redemptions or assigning or otherwise transferring investments into private funds. Alternative investment funds often engage in leverage and other speculative practices that may increase volatility and risk of loss. Alternative investments typically have higher fees and expenses than other investment vehicles, and such fees and expenses will lower returns achieved by investors.

In the ordinary course of its business, Morgan Stanley engages in a broad spectrum of activities including, among others, financial advisory services, investment banking, asset management activities and sponsoring and managing private investment funds. In engaging in these activities, the interest of Morgan Stanley may conflict with the interests of clients.

Alternative investment funds are often unregulated, are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds, and are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors. The investment strategies described in the preceding pages may not be suitable for your specific circumstances; accordingly, you should consult your own tax, legal or other advisors, at both the outset of any transaction and on an ongoing basis, to determine such suitability.

No investment should be made without proper consideration of the risks and advice from your tax, accounting, legal or other advisors as you deem appropriate.
