Triton Debt Opportunities (TDO) – committed capital of €500m

We primarily invest in loans and bonds and provide rescue financing

Triton has significant experience in investing in debt situations and since 2009 has invested in the debt of more than 100 companies. We established Triton's first dedicated debt investment vehicle, the Triton Debt Opportunities Fund (TDO), in 2014 with external committed capital of €500 million. Through the TDO we seek to invest in and provide rescue financing for businesses where lenders are motivated to sell or where the businesses are facing challenges created by excess leverage or cyclical, operational and other headwinds. TDO generally seeks to invest through non-control investments in corporate loans, bonds and other financial obligations and securities.
