Opportunistic Investing

Applying a Flexible Approach to Opportunistic Investing

Crestline’s opportunistic strategy capitalizes on credit market inefficiencies, deal complexity and idiosyncratic opportunities across all market cycles.

Tailored Financial Solutions

We tailor financial solutions for complex needs not met by traditional capital market sources. Our mandate provides flexibility to invest throughout the capital structure and across asset classes in both illiquid and liquid markets and in growth, performing and complex situations.


We take a value-oriented approach, using bottom-up and macro top-down research to identify opportunities that offer attractive risk-adjusted returns.
