Description of Business
NewStar Financial, Inc. (which is referred to throughout this Annual Report as "NewStar", "the Company", "we" and "us") is an internally-managed, commercial finance company with $6.7 billion of assets managed across two complementary business lines- middle market direct lending and asset management. The Company's direct lending activities are focused on meeting the complex financing needs of companies and private investors in the middle market by offering a range of flexible debt financing options. Through its asset management platforms, NewStar offers a range of investment products employing credit-oriented strategies focused on middle market loans and liquid, tradeable credit. We believe these lending activities require specialized skills and transaction experience, as well as, a significant investment in personnel and operating infrastructure.
