Signal’s investment approach is enabled through a highly differentiated approach to originating opportunities, resulting in a sustainable competitive advantage
Signal has made substantial investments in unique and proprietary technology-driven sourcing mechanisms
Signal is proactive in forecasting and identifying changes in market structure or industry dynamics that are creating dislocations in the availability of capital
Deep Relationship Networks
Signal’s investment team is substantially more “top-heavy” than competitive platforms with eight senior investment partners who each have an average 20+ years of industry experience. Signal’s investment team has focused on executing complex, private bilateral transactions over the past decade across Europe and their deep network drives a significant flow of potential investment opportunities.
Investing in mutually consensual opportunities and positioning the firm as a partner and a capital solutions provider.
Pursuing complex, bilaterally negotiated transactions that require substantial investment of time/resources and fall outside the mandate of traditional capital providers in Europe
Identifying inefficient or dislocated markets and sectors, where availability of capital is a central driver of value
Constructing asymmetric risk profiles by limiting downside risk through asset-backed security and creating upside convexity through bespoke and aligned structures.
Avoiding investments with significant market risk, where returns are predicated on a continuation of benign risk environments with elevated enterprise valuation levels and high debt capacity multiples
