Singular Focus, Exceptional Results

Thriving in the complexity of investing in Asia-Pacific private credit markets




We aim to deliver a low volatility, low correlation alternative credit strategy with a focus on capital preservation via funds and separate accounts. The strategy takes advantage of the less developed banking and capital markets in the Asia-Pacific region, and capitalize on strong proprietary deal flow. Investments will be made primarily through bespoke, privately negotiated deals, however secondary transactions will also be opportunistically considered.
