Strategic Value Partners, LLC (“SVP”) is a distressed and deep-value investment firm with assets of approximately $4.6 billion across a hedge fund strategy and private equity vehicles. As of April 1, 2015, the firm had about 100 employees, including 33 investment professionals, across its main offices in Greenwich (CT), London, Frankfurt and Tokyo. Our focus is on distressed, deep-value opportunities where we typically take an active role in transactions, whether driving the financial restructuring of companies facing bankruptcy, on ad hoc or formal creditors’ committees, or leading the turnaround of a business by driving the strategic and operational direction of the company. The team has also developed domain expertise in a select number of industries where investments can be created at deep discounts to value including infrastructure, power, industrials and shipping. SVP’s significant presence outside of the US as well as the extensive restructuring and operating experience of its professionals further differentiate the firm’s investment approach and strategy.
SVP was established in 2001 by Victor Khosla, a long-time investor in global distressed, first at Citibank, then Merrill Lynch, Cerberus, and Moore Strategic Value Partners. SVP started with $100 million in assets under management and a team of 10 people based in New York. It opened offices in London, Frankfurt and Tokyo over 2004 and 2005.
