Our control investing strategies combine traditional private equity with distress-for-control investing. We are flexible and opportunistic, investing at any level of the capital structure and benefiting from Oaktree's superior access to deal flow. Our control investing strategies use limited leverage, and generally hold less liquid, and more concentrated, portfolios than our other investment strategies. Supporting this approach to control investing is our belief that the potential returns more than compensate for the bearing of increased risk.
We manage four control investing strategies that focus on different regions and market sectors – Special Situations1, European Principal, Power Opportunities and Infrastructure Investing.
