Asset-Based Credit

Our Asset-Based Credit business focuses on lending against and investing in cash flowing receivables originated by specialty finance companies.

“We believe our asset-based credit investments provide for security and control in cash flowing assets with structural covenants and downside protection rarely found in other credit investment verticals. This provides potential for consistent risk-adjusted returns that typically provide meaningful relative value to liquid and more highly competitive investment sectors.”
