Kaelyn Abrell is a Partner and Portfolio Manager for ArrowMark’s regulatory capital relief and multi-sector credit investment strategies.
Who We Are
ArrowMark Partners is a privately held, employee-owned investment management firm founded in 2007 and headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Unified by a fundamental, research-driven philosophy and integrated investment platform, we focus on niche and less efficient market segments in public and private credit and equity, leveraged loans, and middle-market commercial real estate finance where our size, agility, and specialized expertise can deliver differentiated investing outcomes for clients.
We aim to be big enough to capture economies of scale in investing, yet small enough to be nimble and pursue smaller and “off the run” asymmetric investment opportunities.
Since our founding, we have prioritized building enduring client partnerships by aligning our investment capabilities and interests with clients’ needs and outcomes. We manage assets on behalf of a broad array of institutional clients and private wealth allocators across our investment strategies, along with the management of broadly syndicated and middle-market CLO Funds and customized separately managed accounts.
As of 6/30/2023
Collaboration is the cornerstone of the ArrowMark culture. Our integrated investment platform facilitates cross-discipline collaboration and knowledge-sharing across credit, equity, commercial real estate public and private markets. By leveraging the full depth and breadth of our investment ecosystem, along with the team’s collective experience navigating market cycles, we believe unique and valuable insights are gained across sectors, industries, and capital structures, which allow us to understand and manage complex risk/reward tradeoffs at the investment and portfolio level aimed at mitigating downside risk and preserving client capital.
Throughout our history, we have applied the team’s experience and insight to organically extend our investment capabilities in market segments and strategies that are synergistic to our research-driven philosophy, core capabilities, and address client-driven needs. We have found asset growth to be a byproduct of our approach if we successfully execute for our clients.
Founding partners set out to build an enduring investment management firm, leveraging their collective years of experience and time-tested fundamental approach to deliver solutions that address client needs
