WE’VE BUILT AN INSTITUTIONAL & SYSTEMATIC APPROACH
TO INVESTING IN NICHE SMALL BALANCE PRIVATE CREDIT
Blue Elephant launched in 2013 and focused its early efforts on fintech/marketplace consumer loan origination purchases where pre-securitization yields were high and volumes were growing. The fintech platforms were a key source of data and credit aggregation which helped to inform the Blue Elephant build out of its quant and underwriting infrastructure around small balance private credit.
The gradual development of this Blue Elephant small balance loan infrastructure combined with an institutional fixed income underwriting rigor has allowed the team to go downstream and unlock higher yielding and more sustainable value for our shareholders through direct partnerships with small specialty finance originators that have deep and proprietary understandings of the niche lending markets they serve. By partnering with the Blue Elephant team, these originators are able to marry their unique market expertise to the dynamic funding, origination, servicing and modeling template that Blue Elephant has developed over the past 6 years.
