Medalist Partners and Semper Capital have formed a strategic partnership to co-invest across structured credit opportunities while leveraging the complementary investment expertise across both platforms. Under the partnership, Medalist will provide investment support and institutional resources to bolster the existing capabilities of Semper, while the firms plan to launch new products together in the future as demand for alternatives from retail investors increases globally. Medalist will also make a minority investment in the Semper platform. Medalist and its affiliates currently manage approximately $2.2 billion in assets across strategies in asset-based private credit, structured credit and collateralized loan obligations (CLOs). Semper Capital is a minority and veteran owned enterprise specializing in structured credit currently managing approximately $1.0 billion in assets, primarily in mutual funds and separately managed accounts (SMAs).

“Our partnership with Semper is highly complementary and further broadens the breadth and scale of our alternative credit platform.”, said Michael Ardisson, President & COO at Medalist Partners. “Having known the Semper team for nearly a decade, we are excited to help build upon their success while expanding client access to investment solutions in mutual funds and other liquid alternatives across the structured credit market.” As an extension of Medalist’s private fund offerings and Semper’s 40 Act mutual funds, the firms expect to launch new products together to further capitalize on market opportunities.

“We are thrilled to add Medalist as a partner to our business.”, said Greg Parsons, CEO of Semper Capital. “Medalist brings significant investment expertise, client partnerships, and institutional infrastructure to bolster our existing capabilities in structured credit and gain access to new areas including private credit.” Thomas Mandel, CFA, Co-Founder & Chief Investment Officer of Semper, added, “The collaborative nature of this strategic partnership means our investment teams will communicate regularly on market trends and opportunities, collectively broadening our perspectives across the capital markets.”

“We are very excited about the current opportunities in the structured credit market and are delighted to work with Greg Parsons, Tom Mandel and the rest of the Semper team to provide investors with access to high-quality liquid alternatives.”, said Greg Richter, CEO of Medalist Partners.
