Neo Asset Management endeavours to fulfil the need of patient, flexible credit requirements of corporate India. This will have a sustainable impact on the investee companies and their ecosystems,” Hemant Daga, CEO, Neo Asset Management, said.
For investors, private credit funds offer a great opportunity for portfolio diversification and yield enhancement with significant downside protection, he added.
