Product Specialties

We are relative value specialists.

Whether assets are performing or non-performing, we assess cashflow and operational risk and can help you maximize value - even the most esoteric and illiquid financial instruments.

In terms of implementation, we are bottom-up analysts. Our work begins with a comprehensive analysis of each borrower's cashflow and underlying collateral value. We then stress the analysis by including our opinion related to macro economic relative value issues and market technicals. Finally, we asses the unique financing, governance and reporting features of the asset. Collectively, we develop a thoughtful opinion about cashflow variability and its relative value.
