Olympus Partners has sold its investment in Neptune Finance CLS.
Olympus formed Neptune to create a diverse portfolio of senior second loans in April 2008 to take advantage of the massive decline in the pricing of senior loans due to the fear in the financial markets.
Olympus more than doubled its investment in Neptune over the period.
This investment is a continuation of Olympus’ focus on financial services transactions which have accounted for more than 20 per cent of the capital invested over the life of its funds.
Financial services investments have included insurance and reinsurance carriers (Ariel Re, Talbot Underwriting, Aspen Re, Tempest Re), insurance brokerage (T&H Group), commercial finance (Churchill Financial) and banks (Country Banc, Eldorado Bank).
