Hayfin today announces the opening of an office in Milan to support the origination, execution and management of private credit investments in the Italian market.
Hayfin has actively grown its presence and investment activity in Italy over the past 18 months. The opening of the Milan office, based in the city’s central Brera district, represents a continuation of that trend. Stefano Questa, Managing Director at Hayfin, will lead the team based in Milan, which will continue to invest through Hayfin’s Direct Lending and Special Opportunities strategies. Hayfin will pursue both primary and secondary investment opportunities across the risk-return spectrum and different asset classes, including real estate-backed transactions.
With its headquarters in London and local presence in Frankfurt, Madrid, Paris and now Milan – in addition to offices in New York, Luxembourg and Tel Aviv – Hayfin is an established provider of local lending and other capital solutions to companies across some of the world’s largest economies.
Tim Flynn, CEO of Hayfin Capital Management, commented: “We have always believed that having an on-the-ground presence and being local to the markets in which we invest is fundamentally important. This is especially the case as we look to build enduring lending relationships with borrowers and access the best opportunities for our investors.
“Italy is a large addressable market with lending dynamics that present a real opportunity for private credit investors – particularly those with the flexibility and capital to finance transactions of significant size or complexity, where demand for credit is especially strong. We’re excited to be making this long-term commitment to Italy and strengthening our dedicated team’s coverage of the market through the opening of this office.”
