In our 20 years of experience we’ve specialized in exploiting opportunities of undervalued investments, utilizing long and/or short-term involvement in the securities of distressed companies, either currently experiencing a major restructuring or reorganization. Within this niche, we focus heavily on special situation investing with these financially troubled and distressed credits.

Located in New York, we are a U.S. distressed securities manager, focusing especially on U.S. firms. Our flexibility to invest during any part of the capital structure or any point of the restructuring process gives us a leg-up in providing a positive return on investment for those investing with us. Utilizing a highly disciplined alternative investment process, we seek to identify securities that have been mispriced within the marketplace, mainly due to the their companies current market standing. By identifying these securities and pairing them with events that are likely to act as catalysts to driving their values towards fair market values, we aim to create positive returns for our clients.

What Are Distressed Securities?

Investopedia defines distressed securities as:

“financial instruments¬†issued by a company that is near to or currently going through¬†bankruptcy. As a result of the issuing company’s inability to meet its financial obligations, these financial instruments have suffered a substantial reduction in value, but because of their implicit riskiness, they offer investors the potential for high returns.”

Through experienced and a disciplined process of research and due diligence, Schultze Asset Management specializes in turning these distressed market fluctuations into positive returns. By pairing these securities that hold below ideal credit ratings (allowing for maximum potential risk to payoff ratios) with in-depth analysis of the marketplace, we aim to identify which of these distressed securities are likely to result in returns. We cover more on the basics of distressed securities on our What Are Distressed Securities? page.
