Wasserstein Debt Opportunities Management, LP (“WDO”) is a New York-based SEC-registered investment advisor focused predominately on leveraged loans and high yield bonds. The firm seeks to create differentiated high yield exposure through primarily private equity backed, US non-large cap high yield issues, where WDO sees potential for price inefficiency. The firm was launched in May 2013 by Rajay Bagaria with backing from Wasserstein & Co.

Wasserstein & Co. is a private investment firm and the family office of the late Mr. Bruce Wasserstein, with offices in New York and Los Angeles. The firm was formed in January 2001, when the merchant banking group of Wasserstein Perella & Co., Inc., a global investment banking firm, spun out to become an independent firm upon the acquisition of Wasserstein Perella by Dresdner Bank.
