Investment Philosophy

We believe attractive, long-term performance can best be achieved through a combination of:

  • Strong fundamental credit underwriting, with a primary focus on principal preservation
  • Identifying opportunities through both ramping the CLO portfolio and actively managing it during the reinvestment period
