North Elm engages in cross-capital structure research targeting equity and credit investments in companies undergoing balance sheet transformations.

A significant structural gap exists between debt and equity markets, created by differences in fund mandates, firm organization, and analyst training.  Equity investors often misunderstand the impact balance sheets can have on shareholder value, and credit investors often understand balance sheet implications but cannot invest in equities.

Founder and Portfolio Manager David Rockwell has 15+ years of cross-capital structure investment experience as co-PM of Tiger-backed North Oak, with prior roles at King Street, General Atlantic, Blue Ridge, and Morgan Stanley M&A.
