Corporate Opportunities

Our flagship corporate opportunities funds pursue a buyout focused strategy, with the ability to flex into distressed investing during periods of volatility. We focus on finding opportunities and investing in market inefficiencies in high quality middle market companies across our core industries: Healthcare, Services / Technology, Industrials and Consumer, where we can aim to reinforce and accelerate growth by partnering with strong existing management teams to seek to generate alpha.


Special Opportunities
Special Opportunities

Our special opportunities funds employ an all-weather, flexible capital strategy that targets private and public debt and non-control equity investments in middle market companies undergoing transformational change or stress. Our strategy targets a broad spectrum of stressed, distressed and non-distressed special-situation investments.
