She has over 18 years of experience in asset management and has achieved business growth through strategic stewardship, new product development and sourcing of M&A opportunities. Before NYLIM, Sweta was a Vice President at Blackstone, where she led initiatives related to cross-platform mandates, relationship management, and operations across the firm’s Hedge Fund Solutions platform. Prior to Blackstone, she was an Assistant Vice President at Lehman Brothers in the Business Process Alignment Group, working on strategy and process alignment for the investment banking division, and a Client Relations Associate, Management Consultant at Starpoint Solutions.

“For the past 18 years, our core investment efforts have always been, and continue to be, focused on the U.S. Lower Middle Market, targeting companies with $35 million or less of EBITDA,” Ted Koenig continued. “We have been fortunate to expand our efforts in areas such as healthcare, software, technology, FinTech, real estate, litigation finance, and structured credit, among others. We look forward to Monroe Capital’s continued growth, as we seek to find new and attractive adjacencies in direct lending where we can continue to generate ‘alpha’ for our limited partners and other investors.”
