Investment Strategy

Investments are expected to primarily be in the acquisition or provision of debt to small to medium sized companies that:

  • Have potential for long term growth and a strong management team;
  • Operate in industries with strong potential growth;
  • Appear to be undervalued and require capital to increase revenue, margins, and profits.

The Fund’s investment objective is to seek investment opportunities that will provide total return of the Fund's investment plus a reasonable rate of return on such investment.

The Fund will achieve its investment objective by making primarily structured credit and secured debt investments in small businesses and middle-market companies operating across various industries and in need of capital for growth, acquisitions, buyouts, or for other purposes.
