We are a top-tier institution in the secondary market for distressed claims, litigation and other illiquid debt, having closed nearly $35 billion in trades since inception. As specialists in illiquid and distressed instruments and litigation, we regularly provide creative and bespoke solutions to our counterparties. Due to the firm’s extensive network we have the ability to participate in most situations regardless of size, complexity or geographic scope.
Our distressed trading activities focus on the financial obligations of leveraged and financially troubled corporations and sovereigns, with an emphasis on entities that are involved in a workout, restructuring or liquidation.
Our special situation activities focus primarily on private market transactions involving illiquid investment opportunities available in event-driven and inefficient trading environments. We tend to focus on litigation driven investments.
We have the capacity to facilitate complex transactions end-to-end starting with counterparty identification/engagement and ending with trade closing and legal settlement.
