Global Credit - Public and Private
We are actively invested in private and public credit funds of all types and in multiple sectors. While we have long-standing investments in numerous well known, larger funds, we place an emphasis on smaller, emerging managers for new investments.
We seek the best investment talent within their sector and area of expertise. Our portfolio includes private credit - domestically and abroad, primarily Europe. Additionally we co-invest with other family offices to acquire private credit portfolios. We manage risk through diversification, risk management, and internal tactical investments.
