Darren Boswell has spent his entire career executing healthcare and real estate transactions, as a principal investor and a transactional attorney. Prior to forming LQC Partners, Mr. Boswell directed debt and equity investing for CareVentures and Post Acute Partners, investment firms focused exclusively on healthcare and seniors housing. At Post Acute Partners, he executed $250 million in healthcare and seniors housing investments in the first 18 months of the firm’s existence. His primary responsibilities were sourcing, originating, underwriting, and executing the firm’s debt and equity transactions. He also oversaw marketing, branding, and public relations for Post Acute Partners. Prior to joining Post Acute Partners, Mr. Boswell spent four years building the structured lending program at CareVentures Finance Group, which focused primarily on investments in distressed healthcare facilities and seniors housing. At CareVentures, Mr. Boswell concentrated on business development, loan originations, secondary market transactions, and workouts. The CareVentures Finance Group investment portfolio, comprised of loan originations and secondary market debt purchases, generated returns far in excess of market comparables during the very difficult climate of 2007-2009.
