Our approach.

York deploys an opportunistic credit strategy, rather than adhering to a strict mandate.

Here are some of the ways our credit team approaches the credit sector:

  • Seek to accurately price in risk.

    Continuously seek enhanced upside and limit downside when pricing risk into portfolios.

  • Concentrate on the best opportunities.

    Seek to contruct highly focused portfolios that seek attractive return opportunities in mispriced and event-driven credits.

  • Influence the restructuring/reorganization process.

    Constructively engage with boards and committees to seek to add value to distressed/stressed companies.

  • Formulate comprehensive long-term outlooks.

    Commit to long-term visions for distressed companies to help avoid impulsive reactions to market volatility.

  • Focus on good businesses with bad balance sheets.

    Hunt for opportunities that are the result of idiosyncratic or cyclical problems, as well as those experiencing secular challenges.

  • Actively manage the portfolio to seek to optimize returns.

    Monitor evolving market conditions that may impact value, and promptly exit positions to create the opportunity to capitalize on more appealing mispriced opportunities.

  • Participate in smaller, off-the-run situations.

    Seek to access opportunities typically inaccessible to conventional high-yield managers.
