Tanarra Credit Partners

A private credit specialist with a demonstrated ability to originate a diverse pool of unique, high quality investments across its broad professional network.

Tanarra Credit Partners (TCP) is the private credit vertical of the Tanarra Group and was established in 2017. It operates offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Wellington and Hong Kong.

Private credit is an asset class of privately negotiated loans and debt financing from non-bank lenders. It includes any debt or financing provided by private companies such as specialised credit managers, insurance and asset managers, superannuation funds and family offices.

It provides funding for companies where traditional bank lending may not be available; for example, where there are complex financial structures, for start-up or growth companies, or for sub-investment grade borrowers with large lending requirements. The asset class has experienced explosive growth and global private credit assets under management are now in excess of US$1 trillion.

TCP’s senior team has over 100 years of experience and an excellent record of originating and structuring leveraged finance transactions across the Asia Pacific region, through numerous credit cycles and across a broad range of industries. The team’s extensive direct self-origination capabilities is a key differentiator, with rigorous credit discipline and bottom-up analysis focused on capital preservation.
