UFP Aquilor Capital funds and advises sports and entertainment companies in regards to credit and equity investments. We have deep industry knowledge of the sectors and an advisory board comprised of world class CEOs, board members, commercial directors, former athletes, ministers and sports agents who help us source, research and manage opportunities. We regard our sectors as niche white spaces, which are often driven by emotions rather than business logic leading to special situations with attractive risk rewards.
On the equity side, we invest and advise in minority, majority, convert, crypto, distressed and restructuring deals. Credit transactions can vary from senior debt, financing of player transfers and forward cash flows to more complex and creative acquisition and infrastructure financing, shareholder loans and distressed credit. Each opportunity is tailor made to the particular situation.
We are one of the very few groups which can cover the whole range of transactions within our sectors and create new situations that have not been previously considered by the stakeholders. Sports, media and music content is a structural and uncorrelated growth area that is not systematically followed by traditional private equity and hedge funds. Europe is at the forefront of many of these subsectors.
