Glendon Capital closes second fund to focus on distressed situations
Glendon Capital Management LP closed its second fund, Glendon Opportunities Fund II LP, at $2.5 billion. The fund is more than doubled than Glendon's first, which raised $1.1 billion in 2014.
Gledon is a Los Angeles-based private investment firm that focuses on distressed and special situations. The firm was formed in 2013. Glendon's limited partners include: public and private pension funds, financial institutions, foundations and endowments.
“The Fund’s closed-end, delayed draw structure that features a three-year activation period, enables us to be patient and deploy capital at optimal points in the next credit cycle in order to maximize returns for our investors," says Glendon partner Holly Kim. Park Hill served as Glendon's placement agenet, while Debevoise & Plimpton provided legal advice.
The middle market has been seeing a rising popularity in debt funds, as a stable investment vehicle for fund managers and investors.
