Investment Platform

Home / Investment Platform

Our investment platform comprises liquid and illiquid strategies, designed to capture deep-value opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic throughout the credit cycle.

We are purpose-built to invest in distressed debt, private equity, event-driven and financing opportunities. We combine direct sourcing, financial and operational expertise to calibrate risk, protect the downside and capitalize on the upside. The firm has established teams in the U.S., Europe and Asia made up of investment professionals, business development executives, operating partners and an advisory council of former senior bank executives and chairpersons. Everyone at Strategic Value Partners participates in sourcing investment opportunities.

Strategic Value Partners manages both open-end and closed-end strategies:

Restructuring & Event-Driven Strategy

An open-end strategy with a broad mandate to invest in large- and mid-cap restructurings alongside other event-driven and trading-oriented opportunities. We manage this strategy with a more liquid mandate than the Special Situations Funds and a short program to hedge macro and thematic risk.

Special Situations

A closed-end strategy, focusing on distressed opportunities in North American and European mid-market companies where we can drive a financial restructuring and a subsequent operational performance improvement. This strategy targets the senior debt of businesses that are fundamentally sound, but may be in financial distress.

Capital Solutions

A closed-end strategy, with the broadest mandate of the SVP funds. It has the flexibility to invest across the full range of investment opportunities sourced by the SVP platform, including: event-driven, deep value opportunities; private debt restructurings and special situations; mezzanine, rescue financings and structured equity; control and significant influence private equity opportunities.

Our strengths:

  • Superior sourcing capabilities providing timely and differentiated deal flow
  • Established leadership in both financial restructuring and operational improvement
  • Equally strong capabilities in both the U.S. and Europe
  • Proactive thematic and industry expertise
  • Risk-conscious approach to portfolio construction
