Thoughts on Atalaya Capital Management?

Has anyone heard of them and what they are all about? I admittedly do not know much about them.

Anything regarding the culture, pay, deal flow, exit opps would be insanely appreciated.

Thanks

Solid credit shop that also dives into some of the special situation/distressed credit opportunities a lot of other firms wouldn't touch. Primarily recruit post IB analysts for associate roles, but I also think they have an analyst program on their investment team. I hear associate pay is in line with other LMM/MM PE shops, think 200k-225k. Shops like Atalaya are the exit opp, but I'm sure you could move to other credit shops both pure-play direct lending firms and special sits credit firms

Do you think a move to a buyout PE shop is possible?

Also, any word on the culture there?

Tbh not informed well enough to give you concrete answers for either, maybe someone else can chime in.

It's a special situations credit shop. Definitely well respected for what it does and has solid investment personnel. People who go here should be interested in forming a career in special situations credit though, not thinking of an exit to a buyout strategy since it's a different skillset.

They invest heavily in the Specialty Finance sector too. Pretty sure their fund dynamics require them to hit double digit to low teen returns which explains why they invest in some hairier deals - distressed/special situations and specialty finance companies that can't get bank financing because of their subprime customer base.
