Our Strategies

Lending to Lenders

Lending to Lenders

Our Lending to Lenders strategy provides senior loans to growing non-bank and Fintech lenders ($10-40 million facilities), allowing these companies to scale. Our specialist team delivers strong risk adjusted returns for investors by creating robust investment structures combined with strong asset backing and attractive investment yields available in this niche market segment.

The scale of these funding facilities make them too large to be funded by equity, yet not large enough to attract wholesale funding lines from institutional funders. By operating in this segment of the market, GCI is able to generate attractive returns for its investors.

Asset Backed Finance

Asset Backed Finance

Our Asset Backed Finance funds acquire asset backed credit, designed to offer investors stable income due to the reliable cashflows of the underlying assets.

The type of credit assets originated by non-bank lenders and financed by GCI includes term loans, invoice receivables, equipment finance, consumer loans, Buy Now Pay Later plans, real estate bridge loans, trail book funding and agricultural finance.

Scale Up Finance

Scale Up Finance

Senior secured loans to high growth, revenue generating companies with a clear path to EBITDA positive, usually backed by strong equity sponsors.

Investors benefit from an attractive risk/return profile associated with senior loans plus upside in the form of equity options.

Special Opportunities Funding

Special Opportunities Funding

The Special Opportunities Strategy invests in high yield debt opportunities with mitigated downside through asset backing, and strong upside through equity participation.

GCI Investor Relations Team

Adam Schwartz, Director Investor Relations

Adam started his career at Investec UK and, after some time at the emerging market house Renaissance Capital, he joined the team at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML). His primary focus was in equities, but he has had significant exposure to a range of asset classes. During his time at these companies, Adam was entrusted with servicing and advising some of the largest long-only and hedge fund clients in Europe. He holds a degree in Commerce from the University of NSW.

Adam joined GCI in 2015 after returning to Sydney where he was looking for a chance to do something in finance with an entrepreneurial flavour and with the free-flowing team dynamic that isn’t possible in companies with thousands of employees.
