2021 ​Year in ​Review

In 2021, we served our partners and remained focused on what matters most: long-term relationships and long-term, patient capital. As we start 2022, we are proud to share that we closed a record year of lending in 2021 - a testament to our unwavering commitment and stability during periods of continued volatility.

We are pleased to share some 2021 highlights:

  • 246 transactions totaling $14.5 billion invested worldwide, closing the year with over $100 billion in assets under management.
  • 96 partners across a range of industries worked with us for the first time, and 126 existing borrower companies returned for further funding, demonstrating our continuation of existing partnerships and appetite for follow-on funding.
  • 149 investment grade partners totaling $12.0 billion, with the highest investment grade originations since 2017.
  • 32 below investment grade partners totaling $2.0 billion, including a $60 million below investment grade origination for Rougaroux Power Holdings, supporting a high-performing hydro facility, which is among the newest and largest hydroelectric facilities built in the U.S. in the last 30 years.
  • Strong activity in corporate finance around the world, including in Latin America with $556 million invested across 8 deals by our Mexico City office. Notably, the team closed a $90 million below investment grade origination for Procaps Group, S.A., a leading manufacturer of high-quality medicines, which marks our first investment in Colombia.
  • $1.6 billion invested across energy and power projects, including a joint effort between our Power and Mexico City teams for Tealov S.A., which will support the long-term reliability of the national electricity system in Uruguay and enable increased renewable energy production.
  • Closing of our first sustainable power deal, under the PGIM Sustainable Power Program.
  • Opening of our Madrid office, Prudential’s inaugural presence in Spain, with $417 million invested in 2021.
  • Strong activity in the UK and Europe, including a $88 million investment with Enpal, a Germany-based solar leasing company to finance the installation of more than 15,000 residential PV systems.
  • Record year of clubbing activity, with fourteen transactions closed, including a club deal with Ameritex, who teamed up with us given our existing relationship and range of capabilities we offer as a long-term partner.
"It is an honor to work with an organization like Prudential, who understands our distinctive value proposition in the industry and who shares our enthusiasm for creating a cleaner and more resilient energy future.”
