Our journey

4 key milestones have been
transformational for our firm

2009 : Inception

Founded as an investment and trading platform with initial capital of $16mn, our founders utilised their extensive experience to generate returns through high yield, distressed and special situations credit. Raised $20mn from institutional private equity in 2010 to fully capitalize on market opportunities

2011 : Transformation

Backed by a large global fund of funds and through an exclusivity arrangement, our firm became an alternative asset manager and launched our flagship ex-US hedge fund focused on stressed and distressed credit and special situations. Over 9 years, our AUM grew organically with positive investment performance and existing relationships, refraining from actively seeking outside capital

2019 : Opening our doors

Recognizing the opportunity for accelerated growth and with the support of the large global fund of funds, we opened our doors to new external partners and launched our first closed-end private credit fund focused on Asia and Europe.

Today : Acceleration

$1.5bn AUM across a hedge fund, private credit funds and SMAs, we strive to continue delivering attractive investment outcomes for our partners by identifying and capitalizing on opportunistic credit plays across Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
We will continue to leverage and further develop our local expertise, best-in-class origination, research, operations & legal capabilities, and rigorous underwriting.

Expertises

Generate outsized returns through active sourcing and management

We have a robust and distinct local presence, consisting of dedicated teams situated in 9 strategically located offices. This strong presence empowers us to swiftly respond to market dynamics, specialize our investment approach, and leverage our exceptional origination, research, operations, and legal capabilities. As a result, we consistently deliver attractive outcomes for our valued partners.

Local by design

With 9 offices across Asia, Europe and the Middle East, we leverage barriers to entry within fragmentated regulatory niche markets to our benefit via our “boots on the ground” approach.

We are nimble

We manage and orchestrate the full investment value chain from sourcing to exit and can act upon opportunities faster than our competitors.

We are focused

Leveraging our founders’ 25+ years of experience through multiple cycles, our investment teams are highly specialized and singularly focused on their specific regions and products. 
Our investment team’s deep understanding of multiple legal and regulatory frameworks, knowledge of market participants & structure, and institutional memory are critical to our success.

We are secured

We invest primarily in senior secured credit collateralized by hard assets and seek to protect investors’ capital with rigorous structuring, robust covenants, borrower oversight, and strong legal documentation in all scenarios.
