GSO's investment strategies include: Senior Direct Lending, Mezzanine, Capital Solutions, Event Driven, and Energy.The firm's Senior Direct Lending Strategy seeks to source and provide privately originated investments that can deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns with strong downside protection, while generating current income through primarily stable, performing credit investments. The strategy focuses on investments that are senior in the capital structure and with a majority of investments secured by floating rate instruments.The firm's Event Driven Strategy seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns by investing in an array of securities within the corporate credit market.
