Our Investment Philosophy

We target fundamentally strong but under-serviced corporates

We provide liquidity to an under-serviced segment of the corporate market

Through market cycles, a number of mid-market Australian corporates which were previously financially sound, and able to service their debt, may experience financial hardship and require new sources of capital to see them through to recovery.   

 

Mid-market Australian corporates with non-investment grade secured loans of $20m to $100m are currently under-serviced by banks.
