What we do
We strive to be a responsive and creative solutions provider for management teams and business owners seeking alternatives to traditional equity financing. We also opportunistically invest in public credit and credit-related opportunities and special situations.
We work in close collaboration with our public and private equity teams and may invest alongside them.
A long-term, partnership-focused approach
Our broad investment mandate includes:
Consistent with Viking’s equity businesses, we are long-term oriented and seek to be a supportive partner to the management teams we invest behind.
Credit is a relatively new area for Viking that we are committed to grow. We believe it is a natural extension of our fundamental approach to equity investing. We also view it as strategic in expanding the range of financing solutions we can provide to companies and investment partners.
Our effort draws upon Viking’s 20+ years of experience evaluating businesses and management teams and partnering with those we believe to be exceptional.
