Argentem Creek Partners specializes in investing in the debt instruments of companies based in emerging markets on behalf of institutional investors. The firm was founded in 2015 when the team spun out of Black River Asset Management, a subsidiary of Cargill, Inc. We currently manage over $1 billion in assets.


We seek to create positive economic impact and long-term value for our clients and partners, the companies we invest in, and the communities in which we work. To achieve this goal, we are guided by a set of agreed-upon principles that shape the way we do business. These enduring qualities are the shared convictions that we bring to our professional and personal conduct. We believe that they are a fundamental strength of our business.

We realize that what we do is a privilege, and that privilege is borne of the trust granted to us by our clients and business partners.

We conduct ourselves with honesty and govern our actions by the highest ethical standards. We conduct business in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

We believe that our people are our greatest asset. We strive to be a dynamic, inclusive organization in which all participants are highly motivated, respected and rewarded.

We foster a culture that encourages our people to strive for the unattainable, to consistently improve and to challenge each other to do better.

We never lose sight of our client’s and business partner’s interests by investing alongside them.
