Our Investment Philosophy

The cornerstone of our investment philosophy is to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our investors through rigorous due diligence at the industry, company and individual security level. We seek to maximize expected, not potential, return through fundamentally-driven, bottom-up security selection that leverages the depth and experience of our investment team.

A Dynamic Approach to Credit Investing

Carlcorp Credit’s teams are structured into a network that enables us to respond to varied investment opportunities, regardless of region, industry, company size or position in the capital structure, which increases the breadth of our pipeline. Our investment professionals are organized in teams of specialists based on either industry type or product type, which we believe enables us to field the optimal team to evaluate every deal.



Carlcorp Credit invests capital across a range of strategies with differing risk/return targets and varying vehicle structures. We offer commingled funds, separately managed accounts and registered funds across a spectrum of liquidity parameters, asset exposures and geographic concentrations tailored to meet investors’ needs.


Global Bank Loans

Taking a fundamental, bottom-up approach, we invest in senior-secured, floating-rate loans through long-only, open-ended commingled funds and through separate accounts focusing on the US, Europe or both.

Multi-Asset Credit

In our more liquid strategies we invest across bank loans, high-yield bonds and structured credit, tactically changing positioning based upon market conditions. In our Total Return approach, we include less liquid sectors such as private debt and special situations investments to provide investors a one-stop solution to below-investment grade credit.


Structured Credit

Our structured credit strategies invest in CLO debt and equity as well as other structured credit sectors, through an active, analytically driven approach. We also offer ways to access Carlcorp Credit CLO equity, which can provide systematic and diversified exposure to an attractive asset class.

Private Credit

We provide complete financing solutions to middle-market businesses with EBITDA between $10 million and $150 million. We have flexible capital to invest across the capital structure and across geographies. Our investment strategies focus on senior secured direct lending and junior capital solutions, designed to meet the risk and return profile of our investors.


Strategic Relationships

Our robust platform allows us to develop customized portfolios with a high degree of flexibility for our partners looking to implement solutions within one asset class or geography, or across the spectrum of liquid and opportunistic credit.

Liquid and Multi-Asset Credit (MAC)

Our Liquid Credit strategy takes a deep fundamental approach to credit investing while overlaying a top-down asset allocation framework. We are benchmark agnostic across our strategies, seeking to identify relative value opportunities across sector, geography, industry, and capital structure.
