Our Investment Philosophy

The cornerstone of our investment philosophy is to seek to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our investors through rigorous due diligence at the industry, company and individual security level. We seek to maximize expected, not potential, return through fundamentals-driven, bottom-up security selection that leverages the depth and experience of our investment team.

A Dynamic Approach to Credit Investing

Bain Capital Credit’s teams are structured into a network that enables us to respond to varied investment opportunities, regardless of region, industry or position in the capital structure, which increases the breadth of our pipeline. Our investment professionals are organized in teams of specialists based on either industry type or product type, which we believe enables us to field the optimal team to evaluate every deal.

Liquid and Multi-Asset Credit (MAC)

Our Industry Research Group is organized into fourteen teams, each responsible for monitoring micro and macro trends and for reviewing and selecting attractively priced securities across the capital structures within their sectors. Based upon underlying industry drivers, teams are organized so as to provide local or global insights.

Strategies Across the Credit Spectrum

Bain Capital Credit deploys capital across a range of strategies with differing risk/return targets and varying vehicle structures. We offer commingled funds and separate accounts across a spectrum of liquidity parameters, asset exposures and geographic concentrations tailored to meet investors’ needs.

We identify opportunities in liquid credit across bank loans, high-yield bonds and structured credit, tactically changing positioning based upon market conditions through open-ended commingled funds with monthly liquidity and through separate accounts. We seek to deliver attractive returns through the credit cycle with less volatility in this long-biased strategy. The total return-focused variation of this strategy includes higher yielding, less liquid opportunities.
