Diversified Lending

Strategy Overview

Investment Strategy

The strategy’s investment objective is to provide stable returns mainly through income generation via a diversified portfolio of specialized private lenders. It seeks to capture the dislocation in traditional banking dynamics via investments across geographies and multiple sectors of activity, including residential and commercial real estate lending, lower and middle market corporate lending, and other asset based and specialty lending. The strategy will invest primarily through Canada-based Limited Partnerships (LPs) specialized in private lending solutions, with a smaller exposure to partners based outside of Canada. The team applies a rigorous, multi‐phased manager due diligence process. Portfolio construction is focused on risk management and strategic liquidity management in an asset class which is typically illiquid.
