History

Founded in 2003

Dynamic Credit started in New York as a fixed-income asset management firm in 2003, extending their services with an advisory practice in the following years.

International expansion began in 2009, when the Amsterdam office was opened. From there, Dynamic Credit grew exponentially, eventually becoming the full-service asset manager and direct lender it is today.
