We focus on consolidating the insurance value chain through direct investments in licensed carriers, data and technology providers, and specialized distribution.
We develop, implement, and market a diverse group of proprietary software, strategically chosen to complement our business goals and companies under management. Current solutions span the litigation finance, consumer finance and aviation industries.
Consumer Finance
Our consumer finance companies originate, underwrite, and service near- and sub-prime consumers, combining proprietary underwriting and aggressive investment strategies to capitalize on the massive and growing demand for underbanked credit.
Litigation Finance
Our litigation finance companies aggregate attractive risk-adjusted returns through acquiring and monetizing financial assets tied to case value. Products in this vertical are designed to improve the case value of litigation.
We capture opportunities throughout the entire aviation value chain. We invest in disruptive companies that fill existing gaps in the market. Current investments include airlines, aircraft leasing, and travel technology.
Energy & Infrastructure
We develop innovative companies aimed at promoting the transition to a green economy. Opportunities in this growing industry are sourced and diligenced by First Sustainable, the green-focused investment arm of 777 Partners.
Special Opportunities
Our special opportunities vertical invests outside of our core industry verticals in unique situations across the capital structure. To capitalize on best available opportunities, this vertical has a flexible mandate with structures that include control equity, high yielding senior secured credit, and minority equity.
Direct Lending
We originate debt investments in less competitive sectors of the lower middle market while utilizing proprietary resources to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns. These investments support acquisitions, buyouts, recapitalizations, refinancing and growth financings via unitranche, senior and junior debt financing structures.
