What is Structured Finance?
Structured Finance is the part of the financial industry involved with non-traditional fixed income products that aim to target stable and predictable cash flows. Often provided to large institutions and companies that have complex needs, Structured Finance aims to provide solutions to investment objectives not sufficiently covered by traditional Fixed Income products.
An ongoing evolution
The Structured Finance industry has evolved rapidly in recent years into a significant part of the global financial system as the demand for alternative sources of yield have become ever stronger.
Our approach to Structured Finance
We originate opportunities across the non-traditional credit spectrum to provide clients with opportunities for sourcing, diversification and spread pick up. We are focused on delivering performance, through stand-alone and multi-strategy investments that provide access to the majority of the Fixed Income spectrum.
With a strong, conviction-led approach to both credit selection and portfolio construction, our stable and experienced team can offer tailored investment solutions for each asset class and client typology, while our agile approach helps us in our efforts to adapt as quickly as possible to the risk and return needs of our clients.
