An Alternative View

Private Equity is in their DNA

Founded as Sankaty Advisors in 1998 by Jonathan Lavine, Bain Capital Credit was based on the idea that one could successfully apply the same level of rigorous analysis developed in Bain Capital’s Private Equity business to credit investing.

A Dynamic Approach to Credit Investing

Bain Capital Credit’s teams are structured into a network that enables them to respond to varied investment opportunities, regardless of region, industry or position in the capital structure, which increases the breadth of our pipeline. Their investment professionals are organized in teams of specialists based on either industry type or product type, which they believe enables them to field the optimal team to evaluate every deal.

Strategies Across the Credit Spectrum

Bain Capital Credit deploys capital across a range of strategies with flexible risk/return targets, liquidity parameters and vehicle structures that are tailored to meet investors’ needs.
