Monroe Named Top Lower Mid-Market Lender by Private Debt Investor


Private Debt Investor once again selected Monroe Capital as the recipient of its 2018 Lower Mid-Market Lender of the Year Award in the Americas region.

This is the sixth consecutive year that Monroe has been recognized by Private Debt Investor as the leader in the Lower Mid-Market, Unitranche and/or Senior Lender categories in the Americas region.

The Private Debt Investor Awards recognize firms in three geographic regions: the Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa; and Asia-Pacific. Winners were selected by eligible voters among the private debt, private equity and institutional investor communities.

Private Debt Investor congratulates the Monroe Capital team on its award in what was a very competitive category. These awards are voted ‘by the market for the market’, so they are a genuine reflection of the views of the asset class in a year when the number of votes cast was higher than ever before,” said Andy Thomson, senior editor of Private Debt Investor.

“We are honored to be recognized by our investors, business partners and peers as the Lower Mid-Market Lender of the Year for the Americas,” said Ted Koenig, Monroe president and CEO. “We are especially honored to be included with such a select group of other high-quality asset managers. Over the years, institutional investors have come to appreciate the consistent and uncorrelated returns generated by the Monroe Capital family of funds.”
