Private Debt Boutique


Katch Investment Group is an asset management company dedicated to liquid, senior-secured private debt, focusing on investment strategies where capital is scarce with relatively high and stable returns.



In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, major central banks’ liquidity injections have inflated traditional asset classes, while new regulations reduced the banks’ appetite and capability to lend to smaller businesses.

Katch identified these trends and decided to launch funds that invest in short-term lending and financing opportunities for businesses that offer strong guarantees. It focuses on areas such as factoring, receivables monetization, trade financing, real estate bridge loans, and others.


Factoring & receivables monetization are transactions in which a business sells its commercial receivables to a third-party financial company (ie. a factoring company). The factoring company then collects payment on those invoices from the business’ customers (usually multinationals and/or governmental agencies).


Trade finance is the financing of the transaction of commodities during the shipping period by a broker that previously arranged the transaction between a buyer and a seller, usually located in different countries.


In bridge financing, short-term loans are provided to real estate developers until they secure longer-term financing with traditional bank. In general, loans are provided over a period of less to 12 months.


Litigation finance is where a third party provides the financial resources to enable costly litigation or arbitration cases to proceed. The litigant obtains all or part of the financing to cover its legal costs from a private commercial litigation funder, who has no direct interests in the proceedings.


Direct lending is a form of financing in which lenders other than banks make loans to companies without intermediaries. This opportunistic financing solution comes with strong collaterals, usually personal guarantees and offers attractive and stable returns.
