The Credit Crisis of the past decade caused fundamental disruptions in the market structure and exposed stark inefficiencies and risks caused by a marketplace dominated by a few large players. The Bear Stearns and Lehman bankruptcies, while bequeathing massive turmoil in the structured credit space, inadvertently, necessitated the emergence of specialized boutique firms and innovative financial intermediaries.
MARV was formed in 2009 to be this catalyst of change in the new normal market paradigm of scarce liquidity, diminished risk appetite, and marked uncertainty. MARV entered this space with a promise to improve transparency, enhance liquidity, and work hand-in-hand with customers to devise improved solutions for portfolio management and risk mitigation. We continue to endeavor to keep this promise and hope to continue to deliver in the years to come.
