Investment Philosophy

Our strength lies in identifying and quantifying risk and return in complex structured debt investment opportunities across the credit spectrum, from AAA-rated to first-loss, non-rated bonds. Our seasoned debt investment professionals blend a credit-driven culture with a strong understanding of relative value. Comprehensive in-house underwriting, supported by proprietary and third-party analytic tools and keen surveillance capabilities, are supplemented by our research and local market expertise to uncover compelling investment opportunities for investors.

  • Informed Decision-Making: Our extensive local real estate knowledge—supported by a regional office network that gives us a first-hand view of underlying collateral—and our considerable structural experience, combined with proprietary and third-party, bond-level analytics, allow for better investment decisions
