Our Philosophy

Hildene has a unique approach to determining value by considering the value of the asset, the options and the structure. Hildene actively evaluates investment opportunities throughout the credit lifecycle. Our experience in the space suggests that certain asset and/or structural nuances are occasionally overlooked or misunderstood.

Hildeneā€™s opportunistic option-based investing approach allows us to add value at all points of the credit cycle.
