I have a case study for a direct lending role coming up. Does anyone have any insight on what direct lending cases are like?

It’s nearly got to be an LBO, think about the function that these direct lenders do. It’s throwing debt on the balance sheet. Most obvious situation will be LBO. Even if it’s not an LBO (acquisition financing or refinancing of existing indebtedness) the model would need to be structured and operate in a similar fashion

Depends on type of DL fund if they are more opportunistic will be harder I.e HPS, Oaktree, Sixth Street. If in person or timed. Usually a model and write up on risks/mitigants/upside. How you’d structure (tl, mezz,warrants), price, would you buy equity.

You might be interviewing for my shop. It's just an LBO where we have you take a day or two to make a model from scratch and do a quick write up on a company and then present to us.
