Hirschler Fleischer client O’Brien-Staley Partners recently closed on over $200 million of capital commitments in an initial round of fundraising for its OSP Value Fund.
Minnesota based O’Brien-Staley Partners is a world-class value investing firm that specializes in US financial industry dislocation. The firm invests in illiquid loans and other debt of U. S. obligors, including nonperforming debt acquired from banks, municipal entities and the finance arms of corporations. E. Gerald O’Brien (former head of CarVal Investor global loan portfolios) and Warren Staley (retired chairman of Cargill, Inc.) are the firm’s founders. Through them, O’Brien-Staley Partners is imbued with the core value investment discipline, risk management and governance DNA that has long been recognized as hallmarks of their personal and professional brands. With these roots, and based in the Twin Cities, the firm attracts key financial professionals with similar pedigrees and deep market awareness to specialize in commercial and industrial loans, commercial real estate assets and other banking situations.
