TCP targets primarily U.S. middle-market credits where the firm can play a meaningful role in each situation, in investment positions of up to $250 million.
TCP makes investments up to $250 million in size, primarily in U.S.-based companies, through privately negotiated transactions and open-market purchases. The companies we target typically are undergoing change due to industry trends, economic cycles or specific company circumstances, but have underlying physical assets and strong, defensible, enduring business franchises.
We leverage our long-term and proprietary working partnerships with sponsors, management teams, boards, investors, credit committees, and other deal participants to source unique opportunities we believe will generate attractive risk-adjusted returns. Our deal flow network also includes investment bankers, restructuring professionals, bankruptcy and other attorneys, senior lenders, high yield bond specialists, research analysts, and accountants. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond rapidly, creatively and flexibly.
