Investments

Covering a wide range of alternative asset classes: Credit, Private Equity, and Real Estate under the common characteristic of a Special Situation.

1.

Collateral Mispricing

Entering at an early stage via strong network and therefore benefiting from an active investor who takes a longer-term view on the asset.

2.

Distressed Opportunities

Process-driven investments where conflict is unlocked between parties by settling litigation or through buying debt from a syndicate and navigating a balance sheet restructuring with a profitable and well-positioned underlying business.

3.

Dislocated Situations

Buying assets at significant discounts to market value or earning attractive risk-adjusted returns through structuring deals.

4.

Balance Sheet Restructuring

Bridging the value trap for companies on the turning point towards formal restructuring, due to limited access to prevailing traditional bank funding, by providing tailored and full-scale transitional capital solutions.

5.

Deep Value

High-quality assets in various sectors with discounted deal multiples relative to cash-generation capacity where we can restructure assets during the pre-exit stage of the deal.

6.

Turnaround

Fully controlled asset-acquisition with a sound core business; underperforming due to legacy issues e.g., weak governance or being forced into overly aggressive restructuring measures put forward by their original lenders.
