about

 

After two sold-out events, the need for a more comprehensive exploration of private debt’s evolution is clear. The 2025 Kayo Women’s Debt Finance Forum will extend discussions beyond the basics to include a deeper dive into direct lending, asset-based lending, distressed debt, CLOs, secondaries, and other emerging strategies. Join 150 esteemed women—allocators, borrowers, lenders, and advisors — for a day of curated networking and engaging conversations. Together, we’ll navigate the complex landscape of debt finance, forging powerful connections and gaining critical insights.
