Illiquid Alternatives

Our purpose is to provide investors with a range of superior relative value strategies

During last years and current months, there has been a clear outperformance of those strategies that have conducted a detailed credit fundamental analysis and a robust security package. Our private credit practice performs a thorough due diligence on every single asset or program to satisfy the highest level of scrutiny before committing to any transaction. We take advantage as well, of the know-how built within SAM to detect what industries will outperform the market as part of our top down approach.

Our purpose is to provide investors with a range of superior relative value strategies, where we have a clear advantage sourcing, analysing and monitoring the risk we undertake on behalf of our clients.
