Our Approach

Our private debt strategies seek to provide investors access to income-producing investments with steady and predictable returns.

Cordiant focuses on offering investors the covenant-heavy, collateral-rich benefits of infrastructure investing alongside the attractive risk-adjusted returns of private credit. Beginning with a sectoral origination process underpinned by deep industry expertise, and adding value through a structuring process that generates alpha through tailored capital solutions, Cordiant brings a conservative, bottom-up investing style marked by strong engagement with the companies in which we invest. As a hard currency, floating rate lender, we adopt a rigorous and scenario-based approach to risk management.

We emphasise upper mid-market borrowers in our core sectors, with a particular focus on Latin America (Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru etc), Emerging Europe (from the Baltics to the Balkans) and selected, high-potential economies in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. We adopt a conservative, bottom-up approach to portfolio construction, cherry picking investees that are grounded in strong business fundamentals and exemplary standards of governance. Cordiant is focused on the long-term development of economies rather than resource-led booms and busts. We aim to provide investors with attractive returns on senior secured and adjacent strategies that are uncorrelated to other asset classes. In addition, we strive to boost our investors’ returns through our demonstrated structuring and syndication abilities. Our private debt strategies seek to provide investors access to income-producing investments with steady and predictable returns.

Responsible Investing

An early signatory of the UN PRI and a member of GIIN (the Global Impact Investing Network) Cordiant has consistently demonstrated its respect for, and commitment to, investments that uphold high standards of business integrity and honesty and respect for the environment.

Our four focus sectors all boring positive impact: be it bridging the digital divide, enhancing food security, reducing greenhouse gas emissions or boosting trade flows. We believe that our portfolios have been strengthened by integrating environmental, social and governance analysis into our rigorous due diligence process. Given the long-term nature of our investments, the stability of our returns over the last decade is a testament to the effectiveness of this approach.

By identifying problems that could arise during the lifetime of an investment and engaging with investee companies to resolve them, investment risk is mitigated. Moreover, local communities profit from the presence of sustainable industries in their midst creating jobs and building infrastructure.

OUR VISION

OUR SUCCESS DEPENDS ON THE SUCCESS OF OUR CLIENTS.

Our success depends on the success of our clients. With that philosophy guiding us, Cordiant has been investing in infrastructure-focused private  investments (principally debt  and tactical opportunities) in the emerging markets since 2001. These hard currency, growth capital investments are often in the form of senior-secured loans to upper mid-market borrowers in our core sectors (including telecoms infrastructure, agriculture pre-export finance backed by first liens on land, transport infrastructure and clean energy). Cordiant's flagship funds make floating rate loans in these sectors and tend to be governance- and covenant-heavy. Our investment focus is on the most attractive emerging markets where we have a defined investment edge. Our clients are some of the world's largest institutional investors and G7 governments.
