At the start of this century, ShoreVest’s partners foresaw significant opportunity in Chinese distressed debt and structured credit. When China’s illiquid private credit market was still in its infancy, ShoreVest’s partners pioneered the creation of a platform in China dedicated to this opportunity. The team was initially successful in some of the country’s first NPL investments during China’s prior credit cycle. After managing these initial investments to favorable exits while at our prior firm, the partners of ShoreVest then raised over US$1.5 billion in several funds and deployed about US$1.1 billion of that capital in NPLs and structured credit investments in China between 2008 and 2016.
With a 14-year track record of consistent returns, our ability to invest in Chinese distressed debt and structured credit has become a highly unique core competency. Through our extensive network in China, the ShoreVest team has led sourcing and acquisitions of tens of thousands of Chinese distressed corporate loans, totaling billions of dollars in outstanding principal balance. Our experience navigating the Chinese legal system informs our underwriting of distressed credit through a realistic view of executable outcomes. To drive investment results, ShoreVest partners have engaged in a variety of exit strategies including sales to third parties, negotiated settlements with borrowers, and, where necessary, court enforcement of collateral.
