Our business focus
Our focus is on providing independent, alternative asset management that benefits from continual questioning, innovation, engineering and re-engineering of state-of-the-art technologies. By applying big data and machine learning, our next-generation prediction models empower optimization of the risk/reward equation. We deliver the precision and speed of decision making that cannot be delivered by traditional tools and investment strategies in alternative credit markets.
We value our culture of collaboration in our teams, with our partners, and with our clients. Our experienced management team and talented people drive ideas, innovation and excellence.
Our team has the experience and expertise needed to deliver next-generation asset management spanning fixed income and alternative credit markets, with a focus on short-duration, high yield investment strategies.
Specific expertise in our management team encompasses investment and wealth management, specialization in innovative and sophisticated credit structure products, systems design and engineering, real estate, and global fixed income portfolio management.
