SLR Capital Partners manages public and private yield-oriented investment vehicles that are designed to earn an illiquidity premium from the private middle market direct lending asset class relative to historically lower-yielding syndicated loan markets.


SLR currently manages multiple business development companies, including SLR Investment Corp. (NASDAQ: SLRC), as well as private funds and separately managed accounts. SLR investment professionals maintain alignment of interests through significant investments as principals alongside our investors.
