There are 42 publicly traded Business Development Companies, and the BDC Reporter premium subscription service tracks all of them. From before the market opens to after the close, we identify and read every press release, SEC filing, and relevant news story about every BDC and bring you our unique blend of news, views, and analysis. Nowhere else will you get end-to-end daily coverage of the BDC market. It’s like having your personal BDC analyst and fund manager rolled into one and always at your side.
We don’t just keep you apprised of what is going on across the sector in near real-time, but we provide insightful commentary from Editor-In-Chief Nicholas Marshi (see below) to help you assess what might move individual stocks and what might not. A BDC announces a new dividend or a capital raise or makes a Proxy filing or an insider makes a purchase or a sale and the BDC Reporter is there to provide context, analysis, and conclusions that can help subscribers make the best investment decisions possible. This is News And Views And Analysis You Can Use.
We admit the BDC Reporter has a point of view about just every subject under the BDC sun. That’s because we’ve been full-time sector commentators for over a decade, and bring a huge reservoir of experience to bear on what we write and in what we invest. We’ve been a commercial lender; investment banker; Private Equity sponsor and, most recently, BDC fund manager, over a thirty-plus-year career in leveraged finance.

HERE’S WHAT WE OFFER:
Multiple In-Depth Posts: We identify the most important stories and write in-depth articles 5-7 times a week in our unique combination of news gathering, analytical dissection, and wry commentary. In any given month expect to have access to dozens of freshly minted articles about almost every BDC out there.
Daily coverage of 42 publicly traded BDCs. Thanks to our own subscription to news aggregation tools we are able to keep track of every new development at every BDC, usually within seconds of publication. For every development, we list the BDC involved and provide a link, as well as commentary in our proprietary BDC Daily News Feed in the Subscriber Tools section. No other publication comes close to “covering” the BDC sector like we do.
Broad & Timely: The BDC Reporter’s updates usually occur well in advance of any coverage by the financial press. Yes, we write about the stories grabbing the headlines, but we also dig into a wide range of other issues affecting BDC companies that get no coverage anywhere else. Ever.
Bonus Features: Every week the BDC Reporter publishes a recap of market activity of BDC common stocks. We review price trends, highlight Biggest Winners and Biggest Losers, and discuss the direction of prices. Sometimes we bring out our crystal ball and predict what might be coming next. We also maintain in our Subscriber Tools section an ever-increasing number of investor resources you won’t find anywhere else including the only constantly updated BDC Fixed Income Table, listing all publicly traded BDC unsecured debt; the BDC Credit Table showing the number and value of underperforming assets in every BDC’s portfolio quarter by quarter and the BDC NAV Change Table, which tracks data all the way back to 2017.
HERE’S WHO WE’RE WRITING FOR
If you just have a passing interest in the BDC sector this may not be the premium subscription service for you. Please have a look at the BDC Reporter’s weekly free articles.
However, if you’re invested in the sector or making plans to do so – either on your own account or on behalf of your institution, or if you’re involved as a manager, director, or service provider, or if you’re a journalist or academic focused on leveraged lending, we encourage you to subscribe to stay up-to-date on what’s going on across the sector and “get granular” with the BDC Reporter. We spend several hours a day generating updates and insights that are not available anywhere else and which we bring to your attention even as the BDC world turns.
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE
To provide access to the widest possible audience and create a vibrant community of BDC-focused readers, we deliberately chose initially to offer the monthly subscription price at a highly affordable $50 a month. You can cancel online at any time and only pay for the month.
Please join us. BDC investing is too important, too complex, and too fast-moving to be left to reading occasional and episodic articles. You need the BDC Reporter every day.
