Our Expertise

Our investment approach involves thorough deliberation and the exploration of esoteric opportunities. We accomplish this by actively seeking out and uniting talented, dedicated individuals, forming a unified team. Our teams are empowered to share ideas, challenge perspectives, and take decisive action as we collectively pursue the greatest outcome for our clients. Essentially we celebrate leadership. We encourage and support everyone to be intense, curious, ambitious and focused, ensuring we’re thought leaders and investment experts, setting new benchmarks in credit management and delivering enduring value to our stakeholders.

A range of strategies spanning the liquidity spectrum

Investment approach based on bottom up specialist understanding of individual European companies

Low correlation to traditional asset classes, delivering equity-like returns whilst limiting drawdowns

One of the most experienced
credit investment teams
in Europe, with a 16 year track record

Our Approach

The investment team’s objective is to achieve high absolute returns across the strategies by exploiting periods of market mispricing caused by operational and capital structure changes in credits.

Credit selection and position sizing are based on in-depth fundamental analysis and due-diligence of European corporates that the team typically tracks over a multi-year period, complemented with proprietary analytical techniques.

Our strategy is a unique combination of limited downside capture and high absolute returns which is achieved by high-quality, deep and rigorous credit analysis. Given that there is a scarcity of high yield and event-driven credit experts in Europe, there is a growing gap between expanding opportunity sets and the number of people like us exploiting them.

Our methodology has been developed, implemented and refined over the past 16 years. It has now been successfully tested throughout several credit cycles.
