Strategy

Raven’s approach to investing is designed to generate superior risk-adjusted returns through best-in-class origination, underwriting and active management of the portfolio from inception to disposition. Investments include non-sponsor-backed loans and the outright acquisition of distinct assets.

When investing in private debt, Raven selectively pursues credits that are asset-rich and often include credit enhancements. Loans are governed by robust and carefully calibrated covenants. When acquiring assets, Raven uses its proprietary expertise in distinct assets to identify clear value and growth opportunities. Raven mitigates investment risk through its rigorous due diligence, underwriting, valuation and proven structuring techniques, applying over 120 years of the Raven team’s combined investment experience.

Raven Credit Funds make secured loans.

Credit Fund loans are fully secured, performing and pay current income from floating interest rates. Raven’s investments are differentiated from the majority of the Private Debt Market due to a focus on non-sponsor-backed direct origination, the inclusion of robust covenants, highly professional execution skills and expert management. Raven Credit Funds provide valuable solution capital to borrowers and as a result generate superior risk-adjusted returns.

Raven Opportunity Funds make highly structured asset-based loans and purchase distinct assets.

Raven Opportunity Funds are unique in the Private Credit Markets in that each Fund makes loans secured by assets and purchases whole assets outright. Loans are structured to provide optimal investment flexibility while also delivering valuable capital solutions to borrowers. In return, Raven Opportunity Fund loans often include equity upside in the form of warrants, preferred return hurdles and/or profit sharing. Asset purchases seek to generate current income through organic cash flow and preserve strong residual value. The dual investment mandate of the Opportunity Funds allows Raven to determine the optimal attachment point for credit investments and the ability to unlock imbedded asset value within the same investment vehicle.
