Oak Hill Advisors is an independent investment firm with performing and distressed credit-related investments in North America, Europe, and other geographies. It specializes in high yield credit, leveraged loan, structured products, distressed investment, and private credit markets. OHA employs a highly rigorous, fundamental, value-based approach to credit investing that seeks to generate strong performance through a focus on downside protection and active management.


Multi-Strategy Credit

OHA provides broad-based credit exposure through commingled fund offerings and customized portfolios tailored to meet clients’ liquidity and return objectives.

High Yield Bonds

OHA focuses on opportunities for which it believes there is a significant likelihood of positive credit quality or rating changes, tenders, refinancings, IPOs, mergers, defaults, or a change in bankruptcy status.

Leveraged Loans

OHA has expertise across the full range of loans including traditional term loans, delayed draw term loans, revolving credit facilities, second lien loans, private lending / proprietary loans, DIP financings, bridge loans, and rescue/specialty loans. 


Across both North American and European markets, OHA invests in a broad range of distressed investments, from traditional distressed leveraged loans and high yield bonds, to rescue financing and turnaround opportunities, to opportunistic private equity investments

Collateralized Loan Obligations

OHA is an active investor in third-party CLOs, seeking to opportunistically identify attractive relative and absolute value by leveraging the firm’s proprietary analytical capabilities.

Private Credit

Employing an opportunistic, credit-driven approach, OHA looks for investment opportunities up and down the capital structure of companies in North America and Europe, typically targeting companies or issuers for whom the syndicated markets do not provide a good fit. 

Capital under management: $50 billion (as of December 31, 2020)
