Trive Structured Capital | Speed and Certainty Despite Market Volatility


With banking sector uncertainty serving as the latest source of market volatility over the last few weeks, companies continue to evaluate their financing sources to protect against unexpected market dislocations and prioritize liquidity.  With committed capital and a flexible mandate, Trive can provide speed, certainty of execution and the capital necessary to support companies during these uncertain times when traditional sources of financing may not be available.

Experience Investing Throughout Cycles
Trive’s investment team has been actively investing across the capital structure for the better part of two decades (including three significant economic downturns), and remains committed to partnering with companies and teams throughout market cycles.

Tailored, Situation-Specific Approach
Trive partners with companies across a wide range of situations; during the current environment, we anticipate an increase in activity across the following situations:

  • Short-term liquidity needs,
  • Patient junior capital to reduce senior leverage and debt service,
  • Strategic acquisition financing, and/or
  • Generating liquidity for shareholders in lieu of a full sale process

Helping Companies Navigate Volatile Markets
With Trive’s hands-on approach to investing, Trive seeks to be a value-add resource to management, providing strategic and operational support, as well as identifying and implementing value creation initiatives.

Established Track Record
Trive has been investing in structured and non-control situations since 2013, having closed six new platforms since 2022, as highlighted below.
