Corbin’s strong asset growth in 2019 was profiled in HFM’s FoHF Billion Dollar Club.

“The collective assets run by the world’s largest FoHF managers flatlined last year, despite the industry posting its strongest annual performance gain since 2013… Corbin Capital achieved one of the strongest percentage-growth gains in this asset bracket. The firm’s 14% growth for 2019 predominately came from client investments in multi-strategy portfolios, with additional growth in opportunistic credit strategies.”

Corbin COVID-19 Communication

Dear Clients and Friends,

We are concerned and actively monitoring the rising number of COVID-19 cases across the US and globally. While we deeply value our high touch communication style with our clients and managers/partners, we want to do our part to put the safety of our employees, their families and our managers/partners first. In an effort to be conservative, Corbin has taken internal precautions suspending international travel and limiting travel within the US. Further, we are requiring any employee who has traveled to, or who has a household member who has traveled to, a Level 2 or 3 country as identified by the CDC to self-report that travel and work remotely for at least 14 days. We are carefully considering whether or not to meet with guests traveling from coronavirus regions and thus far have been able to meet all client and business needs with meetings and interactions via phone and web-based video conferencing. 

As part of a continued commitment to our employees’ and clients’ well-being and a true business continuity test, Corbin employees are currently working from home. Over many years, we have invested in our BCP and technology to be fully operational on a remote basis for all employees and functions across the firm. We have diligently and periodically tested this process and are pleased to note we are functioning at full business capacity at this time. We have also hired an outside cleaning company for a deep clean of the office with additional future cleanings scheduled, recognizing that COVID-19 is known for having a longer surface-life. We have reminded everyone to please stay home when suffering cold or flu-like symptoms, and while this may seem obvious, be diligent in hand washing and replace handshakes with elbow bumps.

In developing our measures to protect our employees and clients, we have spoken with the health department and other experts to better inform Corbin on how to be as prepared as possible. We will continue to monitor the situation and take all precautions necessary to protect our employees and clients. While we hope for the best, we are prepared to manage the risks our business and portfolios may face as the situation evolves.

The Corbin team is available to discuss any of your questions or concerns. Please reach out to your relationship manager or our client services team at clientservices@corbincapital.com any time.

Best regards,

 

Corbin Capital Partners, L.P.

Corbin Partner Speaks at the Women in Private Debt Forum in London

On November 6, 2019, Adriana Clancy spoke on the “View from the deal team: What skills are required to make a successful investment partner?” panel at the Women in Private Debt forum in London.

“We believe that we are able to make better investment decisions and manage risk more optimally with diversity of many forms as represented across our team. If we all have the same backgrounds and/or professional experiences, we are more likely to be narrower in our universe of focus and approach, and importantly, more likely to have similar blind spots. By stacking our team with professionals who bring varied perspectives to the table, we can evaluate investment ideas and understand their downsides in a far more comprehensive way.” - Adriana Clancy

Corbin CIO Speaks with Structured Credit Investor

Craig Bergstrom shares his thoughts on the Land Banking space with Structured Credit Investor. “There aren’t many active financing providers in the land banking space. Consequently, yields across the sector represent a premium to comparable risk because of the low multiples of investor capital involved”, states Craig.

Corbin hosts their first Girls Who Invest intern

We know that we need diverse teams to challenge groupthink and gain different perspectives, but many of us are hardwired to gravitate towards people who look and sound like us. Non-profit organizations like Girls Who Invest are paving the way for change. GWI’s mandate is to support talented and motivated young women interested in a career in asset management, one of many industries that struggles with diversity. This summer, Corbin had the opportunity to partner with GWI to help grow the talent pipeline for the future.

Congratulations to our first Girls Who Invest intern, Katherine Huffert from the University of Notre Dame, on a productive summer! Everyone at Corbin was inspired by Katherine’s eagerness to learn and impressed by her contributions to our team. Katherine’s learnings were evident in her final presentation about her hands-on research and evaluation of a global Long-Short Equity fund. We wish Katherine all the best with the new school year!

"My internship at Corbin Capital Partners provided me with an incredible experience to explore asset management and develop skills critical for a professional in finance. Six-weeks surrounded by brilliant, engaging individuals and a dynamic company culture truly encouraged my passion for investing. Thank you Corbin for an outstanding summer, and thank you Girl's Who Invest for the opportunity to intern at such a fantastic firm!"
