Opportunities Fund

Durum Opportunities Fund (DOF) focuses on investing in situations where financial and other forms of distress have diminished the solvency and liquidity of the business or obscured it’s marketability. The investment strategy continues to be focused on deploying capital prudently into a broad range of assets, including but not limited to restructuring and distressed investments.

The objective of DOF is to ultimately create value and recoveries for investors by repairing deficiencies in underperforming businesses.


Alignment: Our parent company, (SFHC) will remain a large investor in each project, while ensuring the right people are engaged to move the project forward.
Alternatives: Creating and evaluating alternatives is how we protect stakeholders and ensure valuable outcomes.
Action: We value original thought and decisive action – two things that cannot exist without a high degree of independence.


At Durum, we are driven by challenging questions and challenging scenarios. We do not look for “easy” investments; rather we focus on opaque markets where price discovery is poorly defined. This philosophy has provided the foundation for our core operating principles.
