COMPLEMENTARY VERTICALSAreas of Focus

Insurance
We consolidate the insurance value chain through direct investments in carriers, specialized distribution, and data, technology and service providers across the life, health, and P&C markets.
Consumer & Commercial Finance
We underwrite, originate and service near- and sub-prime consumer finance assets, equipment leases, mortgages and project infrastructure to meet the needs of the underbanked.
Litigation Finance
We aggregate attractive risk-adjusted returns by acquiring and monetizing financial assets tied to case value. Products in this vertical are designed to benefit stakeholders throughout the value chain, from plaintiffs to attorneys to experts and other essential service providers.
Direct Lending
We originate debt investments in less competitive sectors of the lower middle market while utilizing proprietary resources to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns. These investments support acquisitions, buyouts, recapitalizations, refinancing and growth financings via unitranche, senior and junior debt financing structures.
Aviation
We are disrupting commercial aviation through strategic investments in operators, software and service providers and the leveraging of in-house engineering capability. Current industry sectors include airlines, aircraft leasing, and travel technology.
Media & Entertainment
We invest in undercapitalized and overlooked opportunities in the increasingly global and consolidating media and entertainment rights space. Current investments include disruptive platforms and successful teams based across the globe.
Special Opportunities
Our special opportunities vertical invests outside of our core industry verticals in unique situations across the capital structure. To capitalize on best available opportunities, this vertical has a flexible mandate with structures that include control equity, high yielding senior secured credit, and minority equity.
