The firm has grown quickly since it was founded a little more than three years ago and now has two BDCs that manage much of its capital.

Owl Rock Capital Partners operates two business development companies: Owl Rock Capital Corporation, a corporate lending vehicle, and Owl Rock Technology Finance Corporation, a tech-focused BDC.
