Direct Lending with a Differentiated Focus

MGG Investment Group is a private direct lender focused on the deeply underserved and less competitive lower-middle market. In particular, we excel at investments in complex and special situations that require distinct underwriting expertise.

Over the past 20 years, the MGG team has built a strong record of trust with key industry players and companies, enabling us to develop a unique sourcing network. We have exceptional access to diverse deal flow given our extensive network of financial and corporate relationships, including local and regional banks, select sponsors, professional advisors, banks with limited or no balance sheets, CEOs, CFOs, and management teams.


MGG favors complex and special situations that enable our veteran private lending team to bring its expertise to bear. Target characteristics and transaction types include:

  • Complexity whereby primary diligence can overcome challenging dynamics
  • Refinancing of existing or tired lender groups
  • Project finance (greenfield/brownfield)
  • Corporate carve-outs
  • Esoteric asset classes
  • Turnaround/restructuring/debtor-in-possession (DIP) loans


MGG launched in 2014 with $200 million from an affiliate of MG Capital. MG Capital is part of McCourt Global, a leader in building value through entrepreneurial, strategic, and philanthropic investments. For more information, please seeĀ
