One Team, One Goal.
At SHENKMAN our core strength is our committed and professional team. Our team of over 100 members is dedicated to the analysis and management of high yield investments. Our firm is built upon an experienced team of credit analysts and portfolio managers, blending home grown talent with senior Wall Street expertise. We strive for a collegial environment, combining the virtues of a family firm with an institutional structure and controls.
Maintaining the Higher Standard.
Despite our significant growth over the past decade, we remain independently owned and committed to independent ownership. Our family culture of openness, friendliness, professionalism, and high ethical standards are critical to our success.
Stability, knowledge, and dedication are hallmarks of our team. Many of our senior professionals have worked together for more than a decade with low turnover throughout the firm. Our senior investment team averages more than 20 years of high yield experience, and our senior research analysts average 10 years of high yield experience. We believe one of our competitive advantages is the quality and resourcefulness of our team. As market contrarians and skeptics, we have the confidence, courage and convictions to be different than our peers and competitors.
