PRIVATE EQUITY APPROACH TO DEBT INVESTING

Freedom 3’s approach creates an investment with attractive current yield and downside principal protection. We help companies and their stakeholders navigate through inflection points in their business.


 

QUALITY OF ASSET

We consider the merits of the industry, company and management team before developing a view of credit.

DOWNSIDE PROTECTION

Structure designed to protect principal, while allowing for upside with a strong focus on cash flow characteristics.

SELECTIVITY

Our selective investment review process seeks out the best partnership for our investors.

The formula behind Freedom 3’s private credit solutions

 

Note: Past performance is not indicative of future results. This does not constitute an offering or a solicitation. 

We look beyond spreadsheets.
We focus on creating a partnership to enhance growth and value creation.

how we do it

  • We look at the Industry. What business is the company in? First impressions can be deceiving… understanding industry dynamics is critical.
  • We look at the company within that sectorWhat is its market share? How is its competitive position? Where is the opportunity for growth? 
  • We look at the management team and owners. Are they flexible, smart, nimble, disciplined? Do they have the capabilities and incentives to succeed? Do they have a strong culture to promote success?
  • We look at the numbers. We examine all the angles. What are the spreadsheets really telling us? Little details can make a big difference.
