Castlelake’s Diversified Assets team invests across a diverse set of opportunities in North America and Europe, including sub- and non-performing loans and loan portfolios collateralized by real assets as well as discrete, small balance assets such as real estate. The team specializes in smaller, off-the-run opportunities where it can unlock high quality assets from complex situations or act as a preferred capital provider where dislocation is present. The Diversified Assets strategy employs a flexible and creative approach that leverages a nuanced understanding of each geography, long-standing relationships and data-driven, granular underwriting to generate value.
