Our Approach

A transparent and methodical approach that drives our investment selection and partnering process

Our Investment Focus

We target strategies that offer significant scale across business cycles but suffer from capital dislocations or limited allocations. Most of our deals are off-market, proprietorially constructed and have following characteristics:

Team’s extensive experience in underwriting the asset class

Opportunistic returns

Attractive entry basis, driven by capital scarcity / dislocation

Uncompromising legal rights:
Senior credit or control equity

Strong governance rights including operational and / or monitoring control

How Can We Partner​

We seek to create bespoke investor partnerships / special managed accounts where our expertise and investment focus compliment partners’ investment interests. We approach our underwriting as a principal and are willing to co-invest to ensure alignment of interest.

We have requisite licenses and legal set up in place to facilitate partnership with both offshore and domestic investors.
