Morgan Stanley Credit Partners is an investment platform for junior debt capital, senior secured loans and related instruments issued by middle-market companies in North America and Western Europe.
We seek to invest in senior and junior debt issued by middle-market companies typically with EBITDA of at least $5 million. We favor businesses that are market leaders, enjoy strong and stable cash flow streams, produce attractive returns on invested capital and demonstrate recession resilience. Our investments typically range from $15-$45 million and we have the ability to collaborate with other investors to complete larger transactions.
As providers of patient, long-term capital, we work in close partnership with our portfolio companies. We seek to take a cooperative role with management throughout the term of our investment. We seek to structure financings consistent with the portfolio company’s strategic and financial objectives. We endeavor to be a value-added partner throughout our investment horizon. For example, we leverage the Morgan Stanley network in support of our portfolio companies including leveraging Morgan Stanley's purchasing power to help portfolio companies buy better. Further, we have the ability to make follow-on investments as necessary.
We view ourselves as value-added, long-term partners who provide more than capital. Once investments are closed and funded, we are able to provide portfolio companies with substantial access to the network and resources of Morgan Stanley.

Alternative investments are speculative and include a high degree of risk. Investors could lose all or a substantial amount of their investment. Alternative investments are suitable only for long-term investors willing to forego liquidity and put capital at risk for an indefinite period of time. Alternative investments are typically highly illiquid – there is no secondary market for private funds, and there may be restrictions on redemptions or assigning or otherwise transferring investments into private funds. Alternative investment funds often engage in leverage and other speculative practices that may increase volatility and risk of loss. Alternative investments typically have higher fees and expenses than other investment vehicles, and such fees and expenses will lower returns achieved by investors.
In the ordinary course of its business, Morgan Stanley engages in a broad spectrum of activities including, among others, financial advisory services, investment banking, asset management activities and sponsoring and managing private investment funds. In engaging in these activities, the interest of Morgan Stanley may conflict with the interests of clients.
Alternative investment funds are often unregulated, are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds, and are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors. The investment strategies described in the preceding pages may not be suitable for your specific circumstances; accordingly, you should consult your own tax, legal or other advisors, at both the outset of any transaction and on an ongoing basis, to determine such suitability.
No investment should be made without proper consideration of the risks and advice from your tax, accounting, legal or other advisors as you deem appropriate.
