MGG Investment Group is a private direct lender focused on the deeply underserved and less competitive non-sponsor, lower middle market. Our non-sponsor focused portfolio of uncorrelated, private lending and special situation investments are designed to deliver constant high cash yields with upside and superior risk-adjusted returns (on an absolute and relative basis) in all market cycles (with zero realized losses in $5bn of originated loans since 2007).
For our direct lending funds, our current net estimated portfolio IRR is roughly 10%. For our special opportunities vehicle, we target a net 15% return. MGG's LPs are leading global blue chip institutional endowment, foundation, pension, and insurance investors as well as select high net worth investors. MGG manages approximately $3 billion of long term committed capital. MGG offers onshore and offshore vehicles, including a Canada Fund and EU/AIFM Luxembourg vehicles, as well as a Rated Debt Feeder Fund. MGG is rated by S&P. Due to COVID-19, the opportunity set for these investments is the best we have seen since the GFC.
