The Raven team has over 95 years of combined investment experience.
Raven provides institutional investors with the unique ability to access the lower middle market through an established process dating back to the late 1990s and a highly-developed operational platform. Raven’s objective is to seek superior risk-adjusted returns and generate current income for its investors through a combination of asset-based direct lending and acquisitions of cash-flowing assets across five distinct industries in which it has a high degree of expertise.
- Intellectual Property/Receivables
- Specialty Finance
- Commercial Real Estate
it to meet the needs of its counterparties while remaining highly
selective in choosing its investments.
By providing solution capital to asset-rich, lower-middle-market companies often challenged by traditional lenders, Raven seeks to fill a void in the current private debt market. Due to its size and highly disciplined focus, Raven maintains a competitive advantage when investing in comparison to larger, more traditional credit-focused investment managers.
Raven is led by Josh Green, a former Merrill Lynch managing director who in 1998 pioneered an asset-based principal finance investment strategy that culminated in the establishment of Merrill Lynch’s Alternative Assets Group. In 2008, Mr. Green left Merrill to establish Raven, which now has a national footprint with offices in New York
and Los Angeles.
