About us

A collaborative team with enduring values

Founded in 2001, LCM is one of the most experienced and well-established CLO managers in the market.

LCM has issued a total of 40 cash flow CLOs and currently manages $10.7 billion of assets1. The LCM team is collaborative and close-knit, with many of the portfolio managers having worked together for decades.

LCM was originally established as a subsidiary of Credit Lyonnais where senior members of the team held leadership roles in the bank’s specialized industries, balance sheet management and workout teams.

In creating LCM, their vision was to take the disciplined credit and risk management culture in banking and enhance it with a more dynamic portfolio management style.

In 2009, LCM was acquired by Tetragon Financial Group Limited, a closed-ended investment company that invests in a broad range of alternative assets. LCM is now part of Tetragon’s diversified alternative asset management platform, TFG Asset Management.

The acquisition gave LCM the entrepreneurial independence and infrastructure needed to further support its growth, increasing AUM by over $10 billion. Tetragon also continues to be a significant investor within LCM’s global investor base.
