On the other hand, James Avery, CEO of Anvil Channel, said. “We look forward to the structural integration of our firms and coming to market with our first transactions in 2021.” As for the trend of renewable energy, the CEO remarked. “We believe that while renewable energy and alternative power solutions are an integral part of the global energy mix going forward; upstream oil and gas are still critical elements of the U.S. energy complex for the foreseeable future.”

In addition to this, Cary Meadow, Executive Chairman of Anvil Channel, commented. “We are excited about the prospects our combined teams offer in terms of addressing the largely unmet small and mid-cap market for direct lending.”
