Cortland's flagship strategy
Cortland Credit Strategies LP ("CCSLP") is an open-ended private debt strategy offered to Canadian accredited investors looking for low-volatility monthly income and strong built-in principal protection.
The fund invests in short-term senior-secured asset-based loans written to lower middle-market companies located predominantly in North America and Europe. These loans are originated and underwritten by Cortland's in-house investment team.

Why invest in this strategy?
The portfolio's main exposure is to private loans written to lower middle-market companies. These loans are structured between Cortland and the borrower, tailored to allow for strong downside protection through stronger covenants, credit enhancements, and close monitoring of financial performance.
Inflation Hedge & Duration Mitigation
Cortland structures its loans on a floored-floating basis, which helps the portfolio stay resilient in the changing interest rate environments while earning investors strong real returns with reliable spread over inflation.
Low Volatility & Correlation
The value of our loans is determined on a fundamental basis using the conservative valuation of balance sheet assets. This fundamental approach leads to portfolio returns with low volatility and low correlation to public markets, making private loans an attractive portfolio diversifier.
Cortland's "Credit Box"
Senior-secured loans occupy the highest rank on the capital stack and are the first to be repaid in the event of default. Learn more about capital structure here.
Compared to cash-flow loans, where companies borrow capital based on future projected cash flows, asset-based loans are based on the value of borrower's balance sheet assets.
Cortland writes loans with a typical maturity of 12-18 months. The short-term nature of our loans allows for frequent credit decisions and better protection of investors' capital.
