SPECIAL SERVICES

Credit Services

Having invested in markets since their infancy, the members and investors of our team employ a bottom-up, fundamental approach to credit analysis and leverage our Group’s extensive credit platform and external investors network of local advisors to seek attractive returns with less-than-commensurate risk.

CREDIT INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Our credit strategies invest in both liquid and illiquid instruments, sourced directly from borrowers and via public markets. We focus primarily on developed and emerging markets, and we invest in an array of corporation credit, project credit investments, leveraged loans, structured credit instruments, distressed debt and private debt. While varied in investment objective and risk-return profile, each of our credit strategies is grounded in our unifying investment philosophy, placing primary emphasis on risk control and consistency.

CREDIT SERVICE DETAILS
  • Private/Business or Alternative Credit
  • Senior Loans
  • Multi-Strategy Credit

Our private/ business and alternative credit strategies focus on investment opportunities in private and non-traditional debt issued by companies that have little or no access to traditional sources of financing. The strategies seek to achieve attractive, risk-adjusted absolute returns by originating or participating in the syndication of performing debt issued by European and foreign companies.

Benefiting from our Group’s global sourcing power in both the credit and private equity fields, our investment teams pursue a fundamental, value-driven, opportunistic approach that leverages strong relationships with private equity sponsors, senior advisors and potential borrowers around the globe.

Our senior loan strategies focus on the senior secured debt of issuers in Europe and developed emerging markets. We seek to achieve an attractive total return while preserving principal and avoiding defaults. The strategies benefit from our emphasis on fundamental, bottom-up credit analysis, and the deep experience and expertise of our European senior loan teams.

Our multi-strategy credit strategy is designed to provide clients with one-stop access to the entirety of our Group’s credit platform. We offer both standard commingled and customized client solutions in multi-strategy credit, geared at earning attractive total returns and current income while limiting volatility through diversification across credit asset classes.

We believe macro-forecasting is not critical to investing, and instead allocate portfolios based on our assessment of relative value. Our approach to defining and executing our multi-strategy credit investing strategy is highly collaborative, drawing on the talents of over 80 credit research professionals across the globe.
