Debt opportunities

This capability invests in distressed debt and special situation opportunities and uses the specialist legal and accounting skills within the investment team to realise full value from those investments.

Distressed debt investing often means purchasing the deeply discounted debt of commercially viable but over-leveraged companies, right sizing the companies’ balance sheets through debt restructuring, and actively managing them back to full financial and commercial health.

Special situation investing mostly involves purchasing real assets in lightly-competed transactions, often from forced sellers at a discount to market price, and creating value by developing the assets, or providing financing to companies or management teams with a track record in a specific sector, to help them execute a material growth strategy.

Our value-led approach seeks to generate high returns by taking issuer-specific credit risk rather than broad market risk. Our team is one of the largest and most experienced in Europe and has undertaken more than 300 restructurings since its establishment in 2005.
