New York, September 19, 2017 — Neuberger Berman, a private, independent, employee-owned investment manager, is pleased to announce NB Private Equity Credit Opportunities Fund LP (the “Fund”) closed on $1.1 billion of limited partner commitments.

David Lyon, Managing Director and Head of the Private Equity Credit Opportunities Fund, said of the oversubscribed Fund: “We are thrilled by the support of our existing and new investors and are excited about the prospect of capitalizing on inefficiencies in North American corporate credit with a long-term vehicle that can provide liquidity throughout various market cycles.”

Including the Fund, Neuberger Berman manages approximately $3.1 billion of committed capital focused on investing in the credits of private-equity backed companies in both the primary issuance market and through secondary purchases. Susan Kasser and David Lyon co-manage the Private Credit business at Neuberger Berman. Learn more about the team here.
