THL Credit is a specialized high yield credit manager responsible for $4.1 billion(1) of assets under management. We have the ability to invest across the capital structure – from broadly syndicated senior debt to common equity in middle-market companies.
Our investment activities are managed by dedicated teams in our Direct Lending and Senior Loan Strategies platforms. Our teams collectively benefit from a scaled and integrated business that draws on a diverse resource base and the credit and industry expertise of the entire platform. Fundamental credit analysis, rigorous and disciplined underwriting, well-structured investments and ongoing monitoring are the hallmarks of our credit culture.
THL Credit’s direct lending group provides debt and equity capital to middle-market companies. Investments are made through THL Credit, Inc. (NASDAQ: TCRD), a publicly traded business development company (BDC), THL Credit Greenway Fund LLC and THL Credit Greenway Fund II LLC and related account (collectively, “Greenway”), separately managed accounts and portfolio companies of THL Credit, Inc. that invest alongside THL Credit, Inc.
THL Credit’s senior loan strategies team invests in the non-investment grade credit market, particularly in syndicated bank loans and high yield bonds. Investments by the THL Credit senior loan strategies team are made through collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), separate accounts and co-mingled funds.
With its headquarters in Boston, THL Credit also has offices in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and New York allowing us to be close to both our portfolio companies, as well as our origination and syndication sources. Over the years, THL Credit has developed deep and diverse national relationships that we leverage to maximize investment opportunities across our platforms.
