THE KATCH STORY

Leading investment solutions within the alternative sphere.

The Company

Katch Investment Group is a dynamic asset management boutique offering innovative investment solutions in a constantly changing and challenging financial market environment.

The group was founded by three partners that combine in-depth financial market knowledge, a history of consistent outperformance and strong analytical skills. 

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, major central banks’ liquidity injections have inflated traditional asset classes, while new regulations have reduced the banks’ desire and capability to lend to smaller businesses. We identified these trends and decided to launch open-ended investment vehicles that invest in short-term lending and financing opportunities.

We focus on areas where the capital supply is scarce that offer relatively high and stable returns for investors.

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

Katch analyzes a wide range of segments within the private debt area to offer unique and uncorrelated investment vehicles. Our main investment objective is to produce long-term capital appreciation for our investors.

Capital Allocation

Katch focuses on and favors niches within the private debt environment that consist of different type of lending solutions for small- and medium-sized companies. Due to a lack of capital supply, these niches allow our team to structure high-yielding investment vehicles.

Guarantees

All our investments are backed by strong guarantees, which usually consist of hard assets with a value of at least 130% of the loan’s value. In some cases, in addition to the collaterals, we buy insurance against defaults from well-known insurance companies.

Diversification

Katch strongly believes in diversification. It is an important technique that reduces economic, industry, country, and other risks. In contrast to other private debt boutiques, we analyze and select investment opportunities globally to find and implement the strategies with the most attractive risk/reward profile.
