Insights from CEO Jeremy Hill: The Philosopher Behind JB Capital

JB Capital’s CEO, Jeremy Hill, who brings over 20 years of experience in structuring private credit deals worth $1B, recently discussed the firm’s investment philosophy.

“We were doing private credit before it was cool,” says Hill. He further emphasized why private credit makes a compelling investment case in today’s world. “Equity markets can be volatile and are directly correlated with interest rate and geopolitical risk. However, our focus on private credit insulates us from the roller-coaster ride of these markets.”

Hill also shed light on the unique needs of investors that JB Capital is committed to serving. “People need a consistent monthly fixed income – something dependable. We’re investing in an area of the market that’s underserved by larger institutional investors. The big guys can’t afford to invest here; they have too much money.”

In terms of investment restrictions, Hill clarified, “JB Capital doesn’t invest in startups due to inherent risks, and we avoid sectors like Crypto and Cannabis because of their risk profiles.”

The Bottom Line

JB Capital’s investment philosophy is rooted in a commitment to serve market segments underserved by larger institutional players. By providing not just capital, but also financial expertise and operational support, JB Capital ensures it delivers on its promise of quality and consistency to both its borrowers and investors.
