Since the creation of IVO Capital Partners, the private credit strategy has focused on originating transactions in markets that are under-served by traditional bank lenders, or where the team can structure an attractive risk-adjusted credit product for its clients to access niche alternative assets.
Our partners and the investment team bring a qualified expertise of originating and structuring transactions where borrower and investor interests are aligned.
This strategy also benefits from our robust research and origination capabilities in Emerging Markets, where synergies are strong with our Fixed Income investment teams.
SME & Venture Lending
IVO Capital Partners has developed a direct lending program focused on senior lending to early-stage companies which exhibit high revenue growth, an innovative product or service, and institutional equity backing.
Our first closed-ended institutional vehicle executing this strategy is backed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and is financing early-stage borrowers in Latin America and the Caribbean, with an impact component.
IVO Capital Partners has been one of the first regulated investors in the commercial litigation and arbitration funding space. We partnered with experienced lawyers in key markets to combine deep legal expertise and sourcing capabilities with our credit underwriting and structuring skills. Through three vintages totaling in excess of $100 million of capital, our investors have been able to gain exposure to over 40 transactions globally through an innovative structuring focusing on capturing the asset class’s de-correlated and asymmetric returns, while mitigating downside exposure.
IVO Capital Partners has the capability to source, structure and execute ad hoc credit transactions to exploit temporary inefficiencies or mis-pricings in local markets where our team has a physical presence. These deals have included in the past platform deals, mezzanine finance or securitization transactions.
