Credit - GS Loan Partners

This is one of the largest fund families dedicated to the senior secured loan asset class.

Text Size

The fund closed in 2008 with more than $10 billion of leveraged capital. The group:

  • Invests across a broad range of industries in the Americas and Europe,

  • Targets investments ranging in size from $250 million to more than $600 million, and

  • Seeks to extend credit to finance companies in need of capital.

Approach

GS Loan Partners seeks to invest primarily in high quality senior secured loans. Our focus is on originating loans for mid- to large-sized leveraged and management buyout transactions, recapitalizations, refinancings, financings, acquisitions and restructurings for organizations such as private equity firms, private family companies and corporate issuers. We may also make opportunistic purchases of senior secured loans in the secondary market.

We target companies with $500 million to more than $10 billion of enterprise value with leading market positions in industries that have high barriers to entry. We look for well-regarded management teams and stable, cash generative businesses.

Advantages

GS Loan Partners benefits from strong relationships forged more than 25 years with leading private equity sponsors and management teams across the globe. These, along with the ability to leverage the rest of the Goldman Sachs franchise, help us generate opportunities to finance companies in need of capital. Other advantages include:

  • Ability to develop customized solutions tailored to each investment situation.

  • Ability to extend credit in size with certainty to companies in need. 

  • Access to the full resources and expertise of Goldman Sachs, including sophisticated financial advice in leveraged finance, mergers and acquisitions, research, trading, foreign exchange and commodities.
