In December 2016, Kartesia became one of the first European collateralised loan obligation (CLO) investors to lead a full reset of one of its majority-held CLOs, Euro-Galaxy III. The deal illustrates the appropriateness of Kartesia’s investment strategy for the CLO market, which is based around being a proactive and opportunistic investor.
At Kartesia we try to be more than a typical lender by reviewing new business opportunities with our clients. As a credit platform operating in France, the UK, Spain, Germany, Italy and Austria, we enjoy a deep network of top managers and experts and we ensure our clients make the most of it.
Given the prevailing market conditions, refinancing negotiations are often a clear inflection point in our borrowers’ credit story. From our experience, secondary debt purchase from historic lenders seeking a way to exit is often a fruitful option. The way we see our job as an innovative credit platform is to do our best to provide our borrowers with the right solutions at the right time.
