Orchard Global is primarily focused on providing solutions-oriented products in niche credit spaces for financial institutions, including both event-driven lending opportunities and capital relief-driven transactions. It serves as a trusted partner to directly originate and structure products that help its financial institution partners maintain and grow their lending activities – ultimately allowing them to maintain and grow their clients.
Orchard Global currently invests in four principal credit-related strategies through a commingled, multi-strategy fund and single strategy funds or structured vehicles, considering among these strategies as market conditions warrant.
- Financial institution regulatory capital solutions focusing on institutions' core credit and lending businesses
- Specialty lending centered on collateralized or secured financing arrangements (bilateral or with other strategic partners/lenders/originators)
- Primary and secondary structured financing opportunities that provide current cash-flow and fixed income trading opportunities
- Illiquid and liquid structured credit trading
By taking an "anti-disintermediation" approach and accessing opportunities directly from financial institutions, Orchard Global identifies bespoke transactions that address each institution's optimal management risk, capital, and balance sheet, structured to satisfy many regulatory requirements and expectations. Orchard Global's long-standing and deep financial institution relationships provide a unique pipeline of specialized lending opportunities, where the firm typically assumes all or part of special situation loan positions.
