We cover transactional positions across a wide spectrum of credit funds, these ranging from multi-billion multi-strategy global funds to smaller AUM single strategy fund managers covering Distressed Debt & Special Situations, Private Debt & Direct Lending, Strategic Credit and Structured Credit Performing/Tradable Credit. A breakdown of our key areas of expertise is as follows:
Distressed Debt & Special Situations
Since 2008 we have been working with some of the leading names in this market, building out teams for the likes of Fortress, Oak Hill and Alchemy Partners with hires across the seniority spectrum from Principal down to Analyst.
Private Debt & Direct Lending
An area very much in vogue and a market front and centre of our offering, we are working with a number of platforms which have managed to put together funds of over $1bn in impressive time. With different risk/return strategies and different takes on whether to chase sponsor-led deals or put the groundwork in with corporates directly, there is a genuinely eclectic mix of participants and this is reflected in our client base which includes Ardian, Muzinich and Park Square.
A growing area where the yield is not attractive enough for pure distressed debt funds but the risk is a little too much for a traditional high yield manager. Becoming more attractive for fund and institutional capital where the mandate is to return a little more than 4-6%.
A competitive market where continued hiring exists with the alternative and more traditional asset management space, managers seeking to find a little more return with securitised debt.
