Alternative Credit Van Lanschot Kempen

Alternative Credit

Distressed Debt, Structured Credit and Direct Lending


Our three alternative credit strategies – distressed debt, structured credit and direct lending – each invest in a diversified pool of non-traditional credit funds with the aim of generating attractive total return through both income and capital appreciation over the long term.


In our view: 
  • alternative credit markets are often less efficient and more labour-intensive than traditional credit markets, with, typically, higher barriers to entry;
  • for each portfolio it is possible to reduce overall risk by creating diversified pools of specialist credit managers with complementary expertise and approaches; and
  • each of these strategies can generate enhanced returns versus traditional fixed income.


Our experienced team manages, multi-manager portfolio’s for distressed debt, structured credit and direct lending. The team follows a disciplined, structured process designed to: 
  • enhance diversification and reduce concentration risk to specific companies, sectors, geographies or managers;
  • enable access to best-in-class specialist managers not always available to other investors; and  
  • deliver an enhanced liquidity profile for our investors, while giving them immediate investment exposure.
