NEW YORKSept. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Crayhill Capital Management, a New York-based, minority-owned private credit manager focused on asset-based investments, today announced the final close of Crayhill Principal Strategies Fund II (“Principal Strategies II”) with approximately $820 million of capital commitments.

In total, Crayhill’s discretionary assets under management now exceed $1.6 billion.

Principal Strategies II will build on Crayhill’s debut Principal Strategies Fund and continue its asset-based private credit strategy, where Crayhill capitalizes on niche but deep market opportunities created by supply and demand imbalances of capital within its targeted investment themes.

Principal Strategies II will focus on providing flexible and scalable capital solutions to specialty finance platforms focused on targeted sectors including renewable energy, trade receivables, specialty real estate, equipment finance, and media. To date, Principal Strategies II has already deployed a significant amount of capital and built a diverse portfolio of eight investments across many of these sectors.

“We are thankful for the strong support from our existing limited partners and are thrilled to welcome in Principal Strategies II a diverse group of new high-caliber institutional investors and their consultants,” said Joshua Eaton, Co-Founder of Crayhill Capital Management.  “We are grateful that our partners share our excitement for the opportunities we are pursuing and recognize our expertise in creating bespoke financing solutions to serve this growing segment of the private credit marketplace.”
