Hayfin was founded in 2009 with the ambition of creating one of Europe’s leading investment platforms. We focus on delivering best-in-class risk-adjusted returns for our investors across four strategies: Direct Lending, Special Opportunities, High-Yield Credit and Securitized Credit.


We consider ourselves value investors, generating differentiated return through hard work, insightful analysis and disciplined investing.

Hayfin seeks to recruit and retain exceptionally talented professionals. We believe in being local in each of our markets, and that our diverse mix of nationalities, cultures and languages makes us more connected to these markets.

Most of our team are industry generalists, with our edge lying in our origination networks and proven expertise in managing complex restructurings, workouts and liquidations. That said, we employ dedicated, specialist teams in the areas of healthcare (life sciences), shipping (maritime) and real estate, where we believe our focused expertise provides an advantage.

We operate across all major European geographies with offices in London, Paris, Madrid, Frankfurt, Luxembourg and Tel Aviv, and have a growing presence in the United States with an office in New York.
