Founded in 2009 by Jason Colodne and Jason Beckman, Colbeck has a core focus of investing in and advising on secured, strategic finance. Colbeck delivers creative, flexible financing solutions to unmet corporate financing requirements.
Colbeck invests proprietary balance sheet into private opportunities originated in-house. The firm has a core competency in secured strategic corporate loans. Colbeck believes that opportunities exist when the credit markets often overweight the significance of idiosyncratic risks and underweight the significance of common risks such as high leverage, low asset coverage, high beta to the economy, and poor structuring. By maintaining a broad investable universe and targeting undercapitalized niches of the markets, Colbeck aims to generate consistent current income and opportunities for upside returns via secured loan instruments. Further, the firm believes that embracing a partnership approach with entrepreneurs, management and equity sponsors regularly creates follow-on investment opportunities with excess-risk adjusted return potential.
Colbeck provides capital and advisory services including loan underwriting and origination, strategic and operational advisory, and agency servicing. Colbeck prides itself on maintaining long-term partnerships with its clients. The vast majority of the companies Colbeck has invested in since 2009 maintain advisory relationships with the firm. Colbeck excels in creating and executing on unique solutions to otherwise intractable capital requirements.
Jason Colodne and Jason Beckman first started working together at Goldman Sachs in 1998.
