Silver Point Capital is an investment manager focused on global credit investing.  Founded in 2002 by Edward A. Mulé and Robert J.

Silver Point’s business model is based on capturing synergies across the platform, building comparative advantages in every area of the Firm, hiring and training the best people, and establishing a culture of teamwork.  As of September 2021, Silver Point Capital has approximately 190 employees and manages approximately $16 billion in assets under management.

The Firm’s co-founders, Ed Mulé and Bob O’Shea, have been building and managing credit and special situation businesses, including proprietary middle market direct lending businesses, together since the mid-90’s.  Mr. O’Shea was hired by Goldman in 1990 to build their bank loan business, which included underwriting, trading, sales, capital markets and research.  Mr. O’Shea went on to become the head of the global high yield and bank loan businesses.  Mr. Mulé started his career in investment banking in the Mergers and Acquisitions department at Goldman Sachs, prior to spending almost four years working in the Office of the Chairman.  Together, Mr. Mulé and Mr. O’Shea built and managed Goldman’s special situation business, as well as a proprietary senior secured, special situation direct lending business.
