Dynamic Credit's mission is to create a better match between savings and credit, for a more prosperous and sustainable society. That match is made by creating investable products with good returns, while offering a faster, smoother and lower-cost product to borrowers.
At Dynamic Credit we positively challenge ideas, seeing the opportunities others don’t. We anticipate the needs of our clients and aim to strike the perfect balance between interests of our investors and borrowers, always acting in a deeply ethical manner, being open in the way we connect with our customers.
Dynamic Credit started in New York as a fixed-income asset management firm in 2003, extending their services with an advisory practice in the following years. International expansion started in 2009, when the Amsterdam office was opened.
From there, Dynamic Credit grew exponentially, eventually becoming the full-service asset manager and direct lender it is today. In 2022, BNP Paribas Asset Management became a majority shareholder, which resulted in Dynamic Credit joining their Private Assets investment division as an independent entity.
Dynamic Credit Group (DCG) comprises the asset management and direct lending firm Dynamic Credit, and the investor services platform LoanClear. Dynamic Credit is fully licensed and is regulated by Dutch and Irish financial market authorities.
Dynamic Credit’s mission is to create a better match between savings and credit for a more sustainable and prosperous society. This mission is integrated in several layers of how we conduct ourselves as a company, and is formalized in several policies and statements.
