Capitalize on Distress
Investing in distressed debt offers savvy investors a vehicle to acquire secured claims against high value businesses that pay attractive current yield, can appreciate in value, and are secured against assets that sit at the top of the balance sheet of large, valuable corporations. These obligations of the company are much more secure than typical equity (i.e. stock) positions and are the first to be paid upon in periods of distress.
Investors in distressed debt have multiple channels to capture attractive returns including getting through the payment of current yield (10%-20% is typical), watching the loans that you purchase for pennies on the dollar appreciate in value, as well as in some cases converting your loans into ownership of the business in a restructuring.
The challenge that most retail and smaller institutional fund investors come up against is sourcing and locating sellers of these attractive positions. Bridgefield has access to a continuous stream of attractive opportunities to acquire performing, sub-performing, and non-performing commercial loans through our relationship with the nation’s leading banks, life insurance companies, and other loan sellers.
Bridgfield's Notes Direct® program allows individual investors to easily invest in curated, institutional grade bank loans secured by high value assets.
Distressed Note Investing
Strong Asset Coverage
Bridgefield targets loans backed by high value businesses and real estate
Bridgefield targets credit opportunities including purchases of secondary market first and second lien debt, stressed and distressed loans and bonds, and trade claims which are senior and/or secured in the capital structure meaning that we are first in line to get paid.
We typically target durations of one to three years.
Equity Returns with Credit Risk
Bridgefield note investments target equity like 15-20% level returns with the lower risk profile of credit investments.
The performance of distressed notes is not closely correlated with stocks and bonds. Our Notes are secured with hard assets to provide capital preservation in volatile environments.
Deep Industry Knowledge
The Bridgefield team is made up of investment managers that average 20+ years experience and collectively have $1+ billion in successful transaction experience from distressed investment groups like Bridgefield Capital, Ilex Capital, and others.
We cut out layered fees of larger institutions to deliver a fee structure more than 20% lower than traditional investment funds.
Evaluate Individual Deals
Bridgefield allows investors to select the investments they wish to participate, not be locked in to investment funds.
