About Ymer

About us

A Nordic pioneer in alternative credit

Ymer was founded in 2017 with the goal to offer Nordic investors access to structured credit markets. Since then Ymer has successfully launched two funds that have deployed €950m, been nominated as the best European structured credit fund, and provided strong returns to their investors.

Superior access to deal flow coupled with quantitative analysis has enabled Ymer to harvest the illiquidity and complexity premia present in global structured credit markets.

Ymer’s founders and management consist of a unique mix of professionals each with multi-decade experience from Tier 1 banks, private equity, and hedge funds.

Our strategy

A broad long-term strategy has provided Ymer with the foundation to prosper in all credit cycles. Ymer invests predominantly in diversified portfolios of floating rate senior secured corporate credit where the underlying loans & bonds constitute the main source of financing in global private equity transactions.

The combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis is used to identify the best opportunities while maintaining a prudent risk approach.
