GSO Capital Partners provides investment advice with respect to investments in first lien loans, second lien loans, high yield bonds, distressed securities, mezzanine securities, public and private equity, and derivatives. The firm seeks to capitalize on both long- and short-term inefficiencies in the market by investing across a spectrum of products, often employing a bottom-up analysis, utilizing market technical and fundamental analyses to select investments. There may be occasions when a strategy may be weighted to deep value or be more opportunistic and seek short term gains. GSO's investment strategies include: Senior Direct Lending, Mezzanine, Capital Solutions, Event Driven, and Energy.The firm's Senior Direct Lending Strategy seeks to source and provide privately originated investments that can deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns with strong downside protection, while generating current income through primarily stable, performing credit investments. The strategy focuses on investments that are senior in the capital structure and with a majority of investments secured by floating rate instruments.The firm's Event Driven Strategy seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns by investing in an array of securities within the corporate credit market. GSO may invest in both public and private non-investment grade and non-rated securities, including leveraged loans, high yield bonds, distressed securities, common and preferred equity securities, and credit derivatives. The firm offers exposure to this strategy in a hedged, liquid and less concentrated form, or in an un-hedged and more concentrated form, often with less liquidity and greater potential risk.GSO's Mezzanine Strategy makes privately negotiated investments in the leveraged finance marketplace with an emphasis on providing junior capital to companies in connection with LBOs, acquisitions, recapitalizations and growth financings.The firm's Capital Solutions Strategy seeks to provide privately negotiated capital solutions to companies in need of liquidity or capital structure transformation due to, among other things, pending covenant violations, debt maturities, cyclical downturns in their businesses or other funding requirements.GSO's Energy Strategy is designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns by originating and investing in transactions in the energy sector and various energy sub-sectors across the capital structure, primarily in debt and preferred equity.
