Astra’s Private Credit investments targets attractive returns through investments in a wide range of bespoke asset based lending, ranging from operating assets to commercial real estate in the US or Europe. Opportunities can both be secondary and primary in nature. For the primary investments generally directly originated, Astra has ability to offer bespoke financing solutions for borrowers with non-standard needs. High returns are typically achieved by simplifying complexities and thus increasing liquidity, be it through streamlining financing or through debt restructuring.
Astra aims to deploy capital in efficiencies the market is currently presenting alongside leveraging on its unique direct access to capital markets. Driving its own structuring also allows Astra to set lending conditions in the form of lender protection mechanisms and operating interventions to ensure maximum returns. Investments are medium term in nature and usually have a high return on capital invested by sourcing opportunities with predictable, stable cash flows and solid collateral.
