brothersTwo ex-Oaktree Capital executives have launched Solace Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on lower mid-market.

Solace will distress-for-control and special-situation private equity investments, according to Dow Jones.

The firm is led by managing partners Vincent Cebula and Christopher Brothers, pictured, who previously worked for investment firm Oaktree Capital Management.

Oaktree has just closed $2.3bn for its latest real estate opportunities fund, beating its initial $1.5bn target.
