Our team has significant experience in complex transaction resolution, deal structuring, and negotiations for both debt and equity participants.

We also we act as strategic partners providing value add services such as operational efficiency strategies and oversight, shareholder services, and growth strategy implementation.

STRUCTURED ASSETS

The Structrured Assetsdivision focuses on downside protection by creating low exposure alternative strategies. Distressed assets create unique opportunities but also provide unique challenges. Being prepared for these challenges is a critical part of the asset acquisition and disposition cycle.

When planning to make an investment, the exit is as important as the entry point. We target short term returns but prepare for longer term strategic positions. Doing so creates multiple exit points while building value, giving the strongest leverage points to the investor. As a partner with deep operational expertise, we create the options that allow investors to take the most optimal exit.
