About Semper Capital Management ®
Semper Capital is an independent investment advisor specializing in structured products with a focus on mortgage-backed securities. Semper Capital offers clients access to multiple investment products ranging from private absolute return funds and custom managed accounts to public mutual funds. Semper has been an SEC registered investment advisor since 1992. Semper is an MBE certified and veteran owned business.
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.
