Our Approach

Differentiated exposure prioritizing cash flow and downside protection

Castlelake’s investment approach aims to provide investors with asset-rich and cash-flowing exposure according to their risk-return and asset appetite, with a consistent focus on seeking to provide reasonable downside protection. We do this by acting as a capital solutions or liquidity provider to asset owners and originators, often in the form of bilaterally-sourced, asset-based loans or financing facilities. Most of our investments are typically structured with self-amortization or cash flow to de-risk over time and generate yield. Through granular structuring and asset selection, we aim to deliver attractive risk-adjusted performance throughout various economic cycles or market conditions.
