THL Credit (NASDAQ:TCRD) - is another overlooked BDC, similar to TCP Capital (NASDAQ:TCPC) as discussed in my previous article and is considered one of the safer BDCs that has grown its portfolio in a fiscally prudent manner with a low amount of leverage, producing healthy earnings to cover its constantly growing dividend.
Business Development Companies ("BDCs") lend to small and mid-sized businesses, with limited financial leverage, paying out most of their income to investors and paying little to no corporate tax.
