More than $4.0 Billion of
credit-related investments over 10+ years
For more than a decade we have remained dedicated to middle market lending, focused on building lasting relationships and providing flexible capital solutions.
Dedicated to the Middle Market
When the Stellus Team first began lending in the middle market over 10 years ago, only a handful of non-bank private lenders existed. Since then, many “alternative lenders” have entered the market and many have left it. Stellus has remained steadfast. We have always been dedicated to the middle market and will continue to be.
Reliable Lender, Lasting Partnerships
The Stellus Team has built robust, long-lasting relationships with middle market companies, management teams, financial sponsors, lending institutions, and deal intermediaries. We bring a collaborative approach to our investment process and focus on providing structuring flexibility, straightforward communication, efficient due diligence, and reliable execution. We view ourselves as more than just a credit investor; we strive to be a long term partner for the businesses to which we provide capital and a reliable credit resource to the private equity firms we support.
Efficient, Flexible Underwriting Platform
Timeliness and reliability are key attributes for any capital partner. Especially in today’s deal environment lenders must be prepared to move decisively. Our small group of decision makers avoids bureaucracy and enables a focused, efficient underwriting process. With the benefit of institutional knowledge gained over more than a decade working together, the Stellus team can react quickly and thoughtfully to new opportunities. We bring a fresh perspective and take a flexible approach to developing tailored capital solutions.
An experienced investment team is at the core of Stellus Capital. The partners and managing directors collectively have over 175 years of private investing experience, having spent the majority of their careers in credit with additional experience in private equity, restructuring, and operations. Our breadth and depth of experience in the middle market allows us to move quickly when evaluating new opportunities. It also allows us to be a supportive partner throughout the life of a loan, even in the face of volatile company performance.
