Special situations

Fundamental analysis and active involvement drive returns

We focus on bonds and bank debt trading at stressed or distressed prices, where our analysis suggests there is a clear path to recovery, sometimes including a financial restructuring. We look to remain senior in the capital structure and secured. Given low entry prices and limited downside, these investments can deliver attractive asymmetric returns.

We look at more liquid and less liquid opportunities, with investment vehicles designed to take advantage of both while ensuring assets and liabilities are matched appropriately.

Experience is key

Experience is essential for special situations investing, and each of the senior members of the team have been working in the industry for over thirty years. All our portfolio managers and analysts can participate in, or lead, restructuring processes, helping to drive favourable outcomes for clients.
