Charles Friedberg, CFA

Charles Friedberg serves as Libertas’ Chief Operating Officer and helps drive the firm’s mission of creating an entirely new institutional class of specialty financing focused on small and medium-sized businesses.

A serial entrepreneur at heart, Charles Friedberg’s career has seen him impact organizations across the financial services landscape. Early in his career, Charles helped grow from five employees to 150 in two years. In subsequent years, his work included leading the buildout of a wealth management platform for Angelo Gordon and pioneering the growth of an emerging asset management seeding platform as its Chief Investor Officer.

Recruited to Black River in 2014, Charles led the spinout of the firm’s emerging market distressed debt and special situations team to form Argentem Creek Partners. Under his guidance as President and Chief Operating Officer, Charles led Argentum Creek Partners to grow from $500 million in assets under management at its inception to more than $1.4 billion.
