The MSD Credit Team invests in private and public opportunities that offer attractive risk-reward. We pride ourselves on solving complex borrower issues and employing a long-term partnership approach with management teams and intermediaries. Over our 15-year history, we have developed a reputation for leveraging the firm’s broad network of relationships to add value to our portfolio companies.
The Credit Team’s approach is flexible by nature. While we primarily invest in loans and notes, we have the capability and experience to invest across the capital structure, including senior secured, mezzanine and equity-linked securities. We seek opportunities that provide attractive returns with limited risk of capital impairment, across a broad range of industries.
In private markets, the Credit Team works efficiently with management teams and intermediaries to perform diligence and structure financing solutions. Throughout the life of our investment we leverage our organization’s extensive relationships to provide support to our portfolio companies in any way we can.
In public markets, we leverage our knowledge base to employ a value-oriented approach, investing in opportunities we believe to be undervalued across the capital structure. Among other types of investments, we may invest in leveraged loans, high-yield debt and, in some cases, preferred and common equity in both performing businesses and those undergoing stress/distress (e.g., dislocated industries, financial restructuring/bankruptcy, weak operating performance, etc.).
