Ascendant was founded more than ten years ago by Sunasir Sen, formerly a Managing Director in the Mortgage and Asset Capital Group and subsequently, the Head of the Healthcare Investment Banking Group at Prudential Securities Inc., responsible for debt, equity and merger transactions.  He created the healthcare securitization market.  He was a member of the Firm's Investment Banking and Marketing Committees. 

Ascendant has structured approximately $5 billion of securities for our clients, partnering with two major Wall Street firms that acted as placement agents.  The bonds were securitized by receivables and real estate, in the healthcare services space

We have a committed fund to invest in:

  • the equity of companies in  healthcare services, including surgery centers, multi-specialty clinics; Accountable Care Organizations sponsored by hospitals with high Medicaid concentration, and Population Health Management companies
  • investment in residential properties in the US 
  • direct lending secured by real estate in the US and Costa Rica.
