Does

01 Investors First
02 Deep-Dive Analysis
03 Idiosyncratic Alpha
04 Downside Protection
05 Trusted Stewardship
“We are our record,” and with a compelling 20+ year track record investing in all forms of credit, Dorchester has earned its reputation as trusted steward of partners’ capital, and for being and putting “Investors First”.
Fundamental, bottom-up investment due diligence, emphasizing return “of” capital, and always remembering, “Risk management begins with the right purchase price and prudent diversification”.
Focus on less-efficient areas of the market where credit can be sourced at attractive discounts and risk -adjusted returns generally driven by idiosyncratic “Alpha” and not by leverage or general market “Beta”.
Rule #1: Do not lose money. Risk management begins with the right purchase price and prudent diversification, and Dorchester’s processes, frameworks and platform are deliberately designed, measured and refined over the years to include other guardrails to help generate results with right (positive) skewness and kurtosis.
Our mission is to help improve people’s lives by being trusted stewards of our partners’ capital and by delivering high quality, risk-adjusted returns. We recognize that managing capital for others is a responsibility and not an entitlement, and we believe this requires constant vigilance, regular improvement, and integrity in all we do.

Dorchester Capital Advisors, LLC (“Dorchester”) manages funds that primarily invest in credit, and in Limited and General Partner interests of public and private credit and other funds, both on a primary and secondary basis.

Founded in 2001, Dorchester evolved over the years from an earlier focus on multi-strategy, multi-manager vehicles to focus on credit and credit secondaries due to outperformance among credit allocations, market opportunities and client demand.

Dorchester benefits from more than two decades of investing in alternative assets and managers, as well as from a dedicated team with the requisite experience, insight, and sourcing network.
