Private Credit Lets Pet Sector Out of Doghouse During Pandemic 

Sasha Padbidri – Refinitv

PennantPark Founder and Managing Partner Art Penn spoke with Sasha Padbidri of Refintiv for her article on the growth of direct lending to pet-focused companies throughout the pandemic.  The industry benefited throughout Covid-19, but Art highlighted that it’s important to consider how the sector will be impacted as we return to normal circumstances. “We still don’t know how the sector will perform when things go back to normal,” he said. “But even before Covid-19, the so-called ‘humanization’ of pets was a growing secular change. The question is, with Covid-19 receding, where does that leave the industry?”
