Alternative Strategies

Special Situations

Since its inception, Spring Mountain Capital has demonstrated a willingness to be opportunistic and innovative in creating strategies that take advantage of market dislocations with favorable risk/reward profiles. In creating these structures, we seek to identify asymmetric investment opportunities where we believe the downside is limited and the upside opportunities are disproportionately large. We have previously invested in ideas that benefited from factors such as:

  • the widening of corporate and sovereign credit spreads
  • distressed selling of misunderstood structured credit assets
  • the issuance of complex asset-backed securities
  • mortgage losses and high foreclosure volume
  • lack of capital in the non-rated municipal market

We will continue to leverage our relationships and reputation to identify additional opportunities that offer attractive risk/reward potential for our clients.
