Top Buyside Credit Recruiters

Was curious as to if anyone had any insight on the top recruiters in the buyside credit space? I believe long ridge partners works with Blackstone but wanted to see if anyone else could provide specific company recruiters? Outside of just specific companies would appreciate hearing about recruiters in general in this space and some of the ones more highly regarded.

Oaktree - Oxbridge(on-cycle summer 2022, SS handled separately)

HPS - Amity (off cycle spring 2021)

Atalaya - Ratio (on cycle summer 2022)

Ares - Henkel (on cycle summer 2022)

Cyrus - DSP

As a general rule of thumb, liquid (especially the liquid arms of big platforms like Ares) will go to the PE headhunters like SG. Distressed HH has been covered a million times, but the usual like DSP, Odyssey, Gobuyside, Robin Judson (has lost a lot of market share), etc.

Robin Judson is the most reputable distress / special sits headhunter -- they get a plurality of the mandates from credit hedge funds.

Not anymore tbh. Most of their distressed opportunities are for 2+2s, and even then they don't have a ton. There were more true public distressed roles on gobuyside this spring and summer than from Robin Judson.
