Investing in complex, granular assets and opportunities with strong collateral coverage

Castlelake specializes in capital constrained or niche hard assets and loan portfolios where we believe that we can provide capital where dislocation is present or unlock value from complex situations. Our team brings deep asset expertise, jurisdictional insight, structuring experience and capital markets knowledge to its investment approach.

This comprehensive skillset enables us to seek to effectively manage investments through the lifecycle, driving cash flow, contractual exits and attractive outcomes. With more than 150 lender relationships and approximately 75 local operating partner relationships, we believe that Castlelake is well positioned to source, invest in and manage effectively across geographies and asset classes regardless of the economic environment.

Experience across assets and countries

The Real Assets team takes a holistic approach to investing in real assets that pairs rich analytics and underwriting data with in-market experience and knowledge. This enables Castlelake to be a patient, selective buyer and a hands-on investment manager. We believe our commitment to relationships with sellers, operating partners, financiers and asset buyers helps us attempt to maximize value at every stage of investment.

Sourcing

Direct, long-standing relationships with country or region-specific sellers, servicers and third-party advisors, including banks and financial institutions, operating partners, asset manager relationships and government institutions.

Underwriting

Rigorous, granular due diligence on company, asset and industry fundamentals, including on-site validation of collateral values and a strong emphasis on creating exit visibility, working with joint venture partners to execute.

Exiting

Strong influence or control-oriented investment style to attempt to unlock value and drive the potential for multiple exit alternatives, including at the asset level or on a platform basis, with a preference for interim cash flow and contractual exits.
