Semper's Approach

Semper seeks to exploit ongoing inefficiencies and dislocation in structured credit markets with the objectives of: 1) maximizing risk adjusted total return; 2) preserving capital; and 3) maintaining ample near-term liquidity. We invest in Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS), Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) and Asset-Backed Securities (ABS) across the capital structure and credit quality spectra. Our approach combines rigorous quantitative analysis, including bottom-up, loan-level credit analysis and structural stress-testing with thoughtful qualitative analysis, leveraging our team's over 20 years of experience in the marketplace. This enables identification of potentially misunderstood and mispriced securities offering compelling risk/reward asymmetry.
