Our Approach

Monarch actively seeks investment opportunities worldwide

in areas that we believe many of our peers or other market participants ignore due to size, liquidity constraints, or complexity. It is our strongly held conviction that investing throughout various economic cycles leads to greater investment success than trying to time the market.

We have often been a first mover as new areas of opportunity emerge.

We embrace complexity, seeking to extract value where others lack the expertise or willingness to engage. This typically results in less competitive situations and greater risk-reward outcomes. As we seek to invest, we may examine opportunities through an environmental, social, and governance lens.

Disciplined Process

As experts focused on various market segments, we have invested over $50 billion since inception utilizing a consistent and repeatable process developed over nearly 30 years of investing, focusing on our three core tenets

Dynamic “All-Weather” Approach

As a result of our flexible mandate and deep sourcing capabilities, we are able to deploy capital where we see the best opportunities around the globe. Since 2008, we have actively deployed several billion dollars annually on average, capitalizing on dislocation across many market segments. Our “all-weather” approach allows us to be nimble investors, giving us the flexibility to invest in what we believe to be the most attractive situations in any given market cycle. We focus on overlooked and niche areas worldwide, including mid-sized corporate capital structures, real estate, government debt, structured credit, and special situations.
