Who we are
Steven Sher Co-founder & Chairman
Steven is an experienced investor and executive who spent 17 years at Goldman Sachs. As a managing director in the Principal Investment Group, Steven spent his professional life thinking about the risk and return on deals. That expertise led to frustration that he couldn’t buy debt for his personal portfolio as a way of accessing strong returns at lower risks. This led him to co-found Global Credit Investments in 2015.
During his time at Goldman Sachs, Steven was responsible for finding, leading due diligence, investing in, monitoring and exiting equity, mezzanine, senior debt and distressed investments. He was on the board and investment committees of all the bank’s Australian mezzanine and equity funds, and he was a director of major European companies, including ISS and Endemol. Before Goldman Sachs, Steven qualified as a chartered accountant in the UK, and he holds a Commerce and Post Graduate Accounting degree from the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa.
Gavin Solsky Co-founder & Managing Director
Gavin is an experienced CEO, director and investor, having co-founded and built significant businesses in the professional services/outsourcing (Portland Group) and health sectors (Healthshare). Portland Group served clients that included Woolworths, Westpac, Telstra and Rio Tinto and had over 200 staff. Both businesses were started with minimal capital and combined high-performing teams and technology to create value for their customers, employees and shareholders.
In 2012 Gavin sold Portland Group to Infosys, a multinational technology and outsourcing company. Following the sale, Gavin began investing his own capital in non-bank lending businesses and co-founded GCI with Steven Sher in 2015. Before starting his own companies, Gavin was a consultant at Bain & Co in the US and Australia and also worked for a major Australian law firm. Gavin completed his Commerce and Law degrees at the University of NSW, both with distinction.
Jacob Rosenberg Investment Director
Jacob holds over a decade of experience in front-office funds management and investment banking. Before joining Global Credit Investments, Jacob worked for JP Morgan Chase, where he was responsible for management of a distressed consumer debt purchasing business. He also spent a number of years on the fixed income trading desk, where he was involved in market-making across a spectrum of securitised and Australian government/semi-government bonds.
Previously, Jacob had been a quantitative analyst in securitisation and structured finance at Threadneedle Asset Management in London, and Babcock and Brown in Sydney. Jacob holds Bachelor of Commerce (Actuarial Studies)/Bachelor of Applied Finance degrees from Macquarie University, as well a Masters of Quantitative Finance from the University of Technology, Sydney. Jacob has also previously qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia.
Adam Schwartz Director
Adam has over a decade of financial markets experience in London, where he worked as a sales trader for three investment banks. Coming home to Sydney, he was looking for a chance to do something in finance with an entrepreneurial flavour and with the free-flowing team dynamic that isn’t possible in companies with thousands of employees.
Adam started his career at Investec UK and, after some time at the emerging market house Renaissance Capital, he joined the team at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML). His primary focus was in equities, but he has had significant exposure to a range of asset classes. During his time at these companies, Adam was entrusted with servicing and advising some of the largest long-only and hedge fund clients in Europe. He holds a degree in Commerce from the University of NSW.
