Canaras Capital Management, LLC is a privately held,
SEC-registered, investment advisor that was founded in 2006. Canaras is dedicated to alternative investing and financial problem solving. We seek to generate higher absolute returns with low volatility by identifying inefficiencies, capitalizing on unconventional investments and creating well-structured portfolio solutions. We search out new and innovative opportunities to remain a leader in alternative investments.
Canaras offers a broad range of absolute return strategies and vanguard products for both institutional and high net worth investors. Our approach has performed through difficult economic environments and during unconventional and challenging recoveries. Our reputation is built on our hard-working talent, our intensive fundamental and technical research and our risk-averse philosophy.
Canaras has a different approach to alternative investments. While many managers discover an opportunity and then search for investors, Canaras seeks opportunities that respond to complex investor needs. Canaras does not follow a single strategy or market and we do not serve a broad investor base.
Our clients operate in difficult economic, political and tax environments that complicate normal return, risk and liquidity objectives. Solutions that succeed in these environments require expertise that goes far beyond asset selection and portfolio management. Canaras develops long-term and close relationships with clients. Our senior managers often interact with clients on a regular basis to fully understand their needs and to respond to macro- and micro- environmental changes. Our investment programs are typically private and involve a closely held group of investors.
Canaras' investment programs may range from large scale collateralized corporate loan obligations to niche venture initiatives. Our client solutions have involved large and small business lending, leveraged preferred share portfolios, distressed investments, asset-backed securities, private equity, real estate and cross border currency hedges. The common theme to these programs is a solution tailored to the investor’s needs and executed with intense credit analysis and a broad understanding of the surrounding economic, political and operating risks.
The Canaras Team is a group of dedicated employees of whom two-thirds are investment professionals. Our principals have been in the industry for over a quarter century during which time they built and managed successful investment businesses for leading financial institutions with total AUM of over $24 billion. The team is led by Anthony Clemente who was responsible for the development and growth of two successful global alternative asset management platforms.
Our analysts specialize in a number of different but related investment strategies. We encourage communication at all levels to promote the common goal of understanding the needs of our clients and the risks and rewards of each investment opportunity. Our dynamic and collaborative culture has helped us to attract and retain the highest-caliber employees.
