Solar Senior Capital seeks to generate current income by investing primarily in senior secured loans of private, middle market companies. On a selective basis, Solar Senior Capital makes control investments in specialty finance companies whose diversified portfolios consist of senior secured loans.
Our investment advisor, Solar Capital Partners, employs a private equity approach to its credit underwriting process, with a focus on preservation of capital. Its professionals apply a partnership approach when seeking investments, which allows us to provide comprehensive financing solutions while promoting long-term relationships, rather than focusing on one-off transactions. This approach, as well as our lack of affiliation with a private equity firm, has enabled Solar Capital Partners to develop meaningful alliances with sponsors and an extensive network of relationships for direct origination of investment opportunities. Senior management is involved in each transaction, providing our clients with timely feedback and a straightforward credit approval process.
Solar Capital Partners manages credit risk by applying a rigorous hands-on underwriting process for each investment. Its comprehensive approach begins with thorough due diligence for all prospective investments and continues with a disciplined monitoring process, which includes ongoing dialogue with company management and sponsors.
Our investments are diversified and generally range between $5 million and $20 million each. Solar Capital Partners concentrates its investing activities in industries characterized by strong cash flows and in which our investment professionals have extensive knowledge and experience.
