So this actually hasn't been brought up in a while, but Im trying to compile a list of respectable distressed players. Preferably control PE funds, but anymore the HF/PE line can be blurred when it comes go distressed companies and their debt.
Other than the obvious Oaktree, Apollo, Ares, and Cerberus who else is out there? There are so many funds out there its hard to keep track. I know there is Catalyst in Toronto and KPS. There is also Angelo Gordon and WL Ross/Invesco. Then the big credit arms like TPG, GSO, etc.
Not really trying to make a "ranking" just trying to put together a list of respectable players in the space.
