Loan Portfolios

Sturt Capital actively seeks opportunities to make investments in consumer, residential and commercial whole loan portfolios. We seek to identify opportunities to acquire assets in situations where others may fail to see value, generally because assets are highly complex or unusual risks need to be managed. We work with industry-leading servicers to manage the loans we acquire.

Asset-Backed Securities

Sturt Capital has made significant investments in asset-backed securities, residential mortgage-backed securities and commercial mortgage-backed securities. In each case, we conduct loan-level analysis of the underlying collateral and potential range of cash flow outcomes. We then apply extensive scenario analysis to manage risk and prioritise capital preservation.

Special Situations

Sturt Capital identifies unique investment opportunities in special situations such as liquidations, receiverships and other distressed situations where this results in the mispricing of the relevant asset.

Operating Assets/Businesses

Sturt Capital has acquired operating assets and businesses that it continues to own and operate. These acquisitions were identified because of their stable cash flows and significant upside optionality through growth and/or restructure to increase their value. We continue to seek to identify further opportunities to acquire businesses. Using our fundamental analytical approach to identify stable cash flows enables us to preserve the capital invested in the business whilst our active management allows us to drive superior returns by exploiting the optionality embedded in the business.

Specialist Finance

Sturt Capital has provided senior, mezzanine and equity funding to companies operating in specialist finance sectors. These include delinquent debt purchasers, invoice financing businesses and boutique consumer finance businesses. Our nimble approach to managing risk allows us to deliver funding solutions that meet the borrowers’ needs and achieve superior returns for our investors in this space.

Real Estate

Sturt Capital has extensive experience in direct commercial and residential real estate investment, as well as in real estate-related debt and equity financing. Real estate underpins a significant number of the investments that we have made and we continue to seek opportunities to put capital to work in this sector.

Debt Financing

Our debt advisory business focuses on analysing complex situations in order to structure and execute optimal funding strategies for our clients. We leverage our considerable network across global financial institutions and non-traditional funding providers to achieve the right outcome for our clients.

We specialise in helping private companies assess their capital structures in order to determine the best path to access capital. Our network allows us to place equity with a broad range of institutions, family offices and private investors.
