Focused on Defensive Growth

We focus on companies and end markets with sustainable strengths in all economic cycles to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns despite economic volatility.

We invest primarily in senior secured debt of U.S. middle market businesses, which we define by annual EBITDA of between $10 million and $200 million, that are defined by the following defensive growth characteristics:
