Second of two parts – View part one

The Lead Left: But there’s lots of competition!

Bob Jesenik: We invest in the real economy, for example people understand that we are investing in patient receivables in hospitals, small business loans, and so on.  Investors are drawn to the fact that they can understand these strategies and the underlying business. Also, with a twenty year track record and broad base of investment vehicles, we’ve established ourselves as a leader of private capital and PE alternative products. Once investors do a deep due diligence dive, they understand institutional approach we take and creating the products that we do.

TLL: Is your work mostly on currently existing transactions?
