We employ a credit-intensive, loss-avoidance approach, emphasizing consistent performance and preservation of capital. We aim to produce steady cash distributions, low volatility, and attractive returns via portfolios of money good loans.
Senior members of our Private Credit Team have an average of 20 years of private markets experience, and have successfully invested more than $4 billion in private equity-backed middle-market transactions across various cycles.
Adams Street has provided capital to private equity sponsors for more than 40 years. Our history and longstanding relationships provide us with a unique knowledge advantage and a preferred position in accessing deal flow.
Moving up and down the capital structure ensures we can focus on the tranche that offers the best risk/return proposition. We believe the ability to maneuver around changing market environments helps our investments perform more consistently and makes them less vintage year dependent.
The flexible nature of our mandate allows us to be a value-added and reliable partner, focusing on the corporate finance needs of the issuer and offering a debt package custom tailored for a specific transaction.
