Cortland Credit is a leading Canadian asset manager focused on short-term private debt. We provide financing solutions to established companies across Canada, the US and Western Europe looking to scale and develop their business.

Our expertise and collective experience in the field allow us to leverage deep origination networks and operate across the spectrum of borrowers, evaluating opportunities on a case-by-case basis. Our conservative underwriting is underpinned by strong collateral support and detailed oversight of our borrower’s operations, giving assurance to ourselves and our investors of the protection of their capital. At Cortland, we focus on senior-secured, floating rate loans that are generally less than 1 year in term, as we believe this asset class offers the best risk-adjusted returns available in private debt markets. The strategy attracts most of its AUM from Canadian institutions that use this strategy for diversification, yield enhancement and duration mitigation.
