Aequitas Capital Management acquires Maple Bay Asset Management

Aequitas Capital Management has acquired Portland-based Maple Bay Asset Management to develop a larger, more diverse set of investment opportunities for its qualified investors and investment intermediaries.

Maple Bay Asset Management's employee-owners, Jason MacRae and Peter Hand, now comprise the Non-Recourse Credit Group at Aequitas as senior managing director and managing director, respectively.
 
Both executives have expertise in sourcing, structuring and managing investment strategies designed to capture attractive private credit investment opportunities, with an emphasis on the rapidly growing peer-to-peer lending industry.
 
"We believe we are in the midst of a historic shift in the way people invest and borrow," says Aequitas CEO Bob Jesenik. "Jason's and Peter's experience in the peer-to-peer space is ideally suited to capturing the opportunities created by this change, opportunities that align perfectly with other Aequitas Capital private credit and private equity investment strategies."
 
"Aequitas has a well-earned reputation for structuring innovative credit solutions where finance and technology intersect," says Jason MacRae. "We are delighted to be joining the impressive team of professionals at Aequitas, and excited about the potential for the firm and its investors."
