History  

More than 20 years of credit-focused investment experience

Crescent was formed in 1991 as Crescent Capital Corporation by Mark Attanasio and Jean-Marc Chapus who played an active role in the development and growth of the high yield bond market. In 1995, Crescent was acquired by Trust Company of the West (TCW) and rebranded as TCW’s Leveraged Finance Group. On January 1, 2011, Messrs. Attanasio and Chapus, along with the entire investment team, spun out of TCW and formed Crescent Capital Group LP, an employee-owned, registered investment adviser with approximately $24 billion1 in assets under management as of March 31, 2017.

Our independence provides us with a unique focus on our below investment grade credit strategies.

Crescent has more than 20 years of credit-focused investment experience. Messrs. Attanasio and Chapus lead Crescent's management committee that oversees all of our operations. In addition, our 29 senior investment professionals share an average of more than 15 years of investing experience.
