We seek out opportunities created by inefficient capital structures, event-driven distress and asset-level difficulties that can be acquired at a significant discount in Switzerland, continental Europe and rest of the World. Fixed income securities or bonds play a vital role in our concentrated portfolio management strategy, providing an important source of capital stability, income, liquidity and diversification.

Corporate debt and securities has been a core investment strategy since we were founded in 2007. We invest in countries within Europe and rest of the World at all levels of the capital structure – from debt (first lien bank debt, second lien loans and high yield bonds) to undervalued listed equities.

We seek to be a constructive force in the change management process, working with management and business owners when and where appropriate to help maximize the potential for long-term business success and sustainable profit margins, meeting our bondholders expectations.
