A pioneer in global credit

Value-driven, contrarian investing with a focus on managing risk

Oaktree offers a broad range of credit strategies. The firm’s expertise includes both liquid and illiquid instruments sourced directly from borrowers and via public markets. They focus primarily on rated and non-rated debt of sub-investment grade issuers in developed and emerging markets. Oaktree invests in an array of high-yield bonds, convertible securities, leveraged loans, structured credit instruments, distressed debt and private debt, among other investment areas.


They believe their bottom-up fundamental credit analysis and firm-wide expertise in investing over multiple market cycles provide a competitive edge.
