In certain instances, we also make subordinated debt investments, which may include an associated equity component such as warrants, preferred stock or other similar securities and direct equity co-investments.
Direct Lending investments may be made through First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC, Inc. (NASDAQ: FCRD), a publicly traded business development company, and/or other private fund vehicles.

Our direct lending investment teams are organized by industry verticals. This enables us to identify risks early in our underwriting, provide value to sponsors in their diligence and execute transactions with a high level of conviction.
At First Eagle Alternative Credit*, we take a hands-on, creative approach to investment sourcing, underwriting and portfolio management.
With offices in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York, we have a deep and diverse relationship network. Each of our offices maintains an integrated deal team (i.e., origination, underwriting and portfolio management), allowing us to be closer to smaller, regional sponsors who often prefer deeper relationships with local lenders.
Relationships with our investors are equally as important to us. Building trusted relationships is a hallmark of how we conduct our business and this starts with the shareholder. Being good stewards of shareholder capital and consistently providing an attractive risk-adjusted return are at the core of this.
