Capabilities

We organize our investment capabilities into three distinct, yet collaborative, verticals that include Public Credit, Capital Solutions and Special Situations. For those seeking a comprehensive emerging markets solution, we offer the ability to access Gramercy’s credit expertise through our Multi-Asset Portfolio, which invests across the verticals. Each of these benefits from the in-depth analysis of our investment team while incorporating our proprietary ESG research and our goal of making an impact when circumstances permit.

MULTI ASSET


The strategy capitalizes on Gramercy’s highest conviction ideas through an unconstrained, multi-strategy approach to emerging markets. Proprietary, fundamental bottom-up research combines with the top-down perspective of Gramercy’s seasoned team of EM investors, led by Chief Investment Officer Robert Koenigsberger. Our approach enables effective allocation among opportunities and seeks to generate high, uncorrelated returns that are tail risk aware.

PUBLIC CREDIT


Our public credit strategies focus on unique opportunities in corporate, sovereign and  quasi-sovereign entities. These may include stressed/distressed and defaulted bonds and emerging markets debt securities. Emerging markets debt strategies focus on USD Sovereign Debt, Local Markets Sovereign Debt, Corporate Debt and High Yield Corporate Debt.

Opportunities are identified by our proprietary, fundamental research and credit analysis. Alpha generation takes place through bottom-up, intensive credit evaluation/monitoring combined with the top-down perspective of a highly experienced team.

CAPITAL SOLUTIONS


We seek to provide growth capital to middle market EM corporates through secured private transactions. The strategy targets senior secured direct loans and mezzanine debt with three to five year final maturities in highly collateralized structures with significant downside protection.

The strategy has identified a sector of emerging markets economies, primarily composed of small and medium-sized enterprises that lack access to the capital markets and are not currently served by the banking industry.

The experience of our Capital Solutions team along with Gramercy’s institutionalized nature facilitate sophisticated and bespoke deal structures.

SPECIAL SITUATIONS


We seek to identify idiosyncratic opportunities in emerging markets though active roles in processes that focus on our ability to catalyze investment results for the benefit of our clients. Our ability to move quickly affords us an advantage over firms who lack our emerging markets experience and contacts.

Up-front analysis and proper structuring of our investments ensure we protect our legal standing and allow for various paths to resolution; i.e. negotiated settlement, payment via capital market instruments and if necessary, litigation.
