Investment Platform

Home / Investment Platform

SVPGlobal’s 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, and event-driven opportunities, which require a unique combination of direct sourcing, financial, and operational expertise in order to calibrate risk, protect the downside and capitalize on the upside. The firm has established teams in the U.S. and in Europe made up of investment professionals, business development executives, operating partners, and an advisory council of former senior bank executives and chairpersons. Everyone at SVPGlobal participates in sourcing investment opportunities.

SVPGlobal 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.

SVPGlobal’s 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
