“At Cortland we believe that private debt offers the best risk adjusted returns currently available to investors.”
A large market – the value of non-mortgage private Canadian business borrowing not met by chartered banks was reported by Bank of Canada for July 2016 at $123 billion. Banks and other financial institutions do not have the capacity nor do they adequately support asset-based lending programs critical to growing Canadian Companies.
Our portfolio consists of traditional as well as non-traditional debt instruments, and consists primarily of self-liquidating assets – typically receivable and/or funded sale obligations.
These investments are structured with strong collateral support, multiple levels of recourse and credit enhancement. They represent a senior and secured claim on counterparty assets and therefore they hold a priority position with regards to payment.
