Private credit allows for flexible investment strategies based upon changing market conditions and offers portfolio diversification away from the public markets.

Why Private Credit?

The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of senior secured loans, among other private credit opportunities.

Senior secured loans have historically provided a natural and effective hedge against inflation and rising interest rates due to the floating-rate coupon. Recent market uncertainty has led to spread widening, providing a compelling environment to deploy capital into private credit.

We believe the strong tailwinds that currently exist for private credit due to the significant amount of “dry powder”, or cash reserves held by companies for investments, that remains within private equity funds, may provide for a sustained private credit opportunity environment for the foreseeable future.

An Attractive Opportunity for Investors

“The demand for private credit continues to grow, as there has been decreased participation by banks in the leveraged loan market. We believe this growing, $1 trillion asset class represents a significant opportunity for our investors.”

What is Private Credit?

The Fund’s strategy is focused on direct lending—the predominant asset class in the private credit universe. Direct lending includes any debt held by—or extended to—privately held companies, and it most commonly involves non-bank institutions making loans to private companies. The private company is obligated to pay back the full sum of the loan, plus interest, to the lending institution. Direct loans are senior in the capital stack3 or the structure of all capital that is invested into a company, secured by collateral, and offer floating interest rates.

Principal + Interest

The borrower is obligated to pay back the full loan principal, with interest, in accordance with deal terms. Direct lending is attractive to some investors due to its potential for returns.

Let's Get Started


The Alternative investments held in the fund highly speculative and involve a great degree of risk and are not suitable for all investors. Full loss of principal is possible. The fund may often engage in the use of leverage and other speculative investment practices, such as short sales, options, derivatives, futures and illiquid investments that may increase the risk of investment loss. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. The fund’s high fees and expenses will offset the fund’s total return. There are restrictions on transferring interests in the fund. There is no secondary market for the investor’s interest in the fund and none is expected to develop. An investment should only be considered by investors who can bear illiquidity risk for an indefinite period of time and be able to withstand a total loss of the amount invested. The fund is not required to provide investors with periodic pricing or valuation, and often charges high fees. Private funds are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as registered funds. Investing in private funds may also involve complex tax structures and delays in distributing important tax information. Speak to your Financial Adviser before investing. The fund does not represent a complete investment program. Investors in fund of funds will incur asset-based fees and expenses at the fund level and indirect fees, expenses and asset-based compensation of investment funds in which these funds invest. The Fund is exclusively for accredited investors or institutional investors.

Investments, in private equity funds, are subject to investment, tax, regulatory, market, macro-economic and other risks, including loss of the principal amount invested. Investment denominated in a foreign currency are subject to factors including but not limited to changes in exchange rates that may have an adverse effect on the value of the investment. Past performance as well as any projection or forecast used or discussed in these materials are not indicative of future or likely performance of any investment product. Statements may be forward looking and are not intended as specific investment advice or guarantees of future performance. Such forward-looking statements necessarily involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause actual performance and financial results in future periods to differ materially from any projections of future performance or result expressed or implied by such statements. There is no assurance the fund’s investment objectives will be met.

The fact that Senior secured loans are “secured” and the borrower’s repayment is obligated, does not guarantee the borrowed amount will be repaid in part or whole. The Senior secured loans provided may be unable to repay their debt.

Distributions may be paid from sources other than revenue produced by the portfolio, such as investor proceeds and financing which is not sustainable and can reduce investor returns.

General interest rate fluctuations may have a substantial negative impact on the debt investments which can have an adverse impact on returns. During volatile times, floating rate debt instruments tend to rise; however, there may be a significant number of borrowers of such floating rate debt instruments that may be unable or unwilling to repay their loan obligations.

Prequin data sets do not reflect all private equity, rather it is a subset of PE investments. There is no index or data set that represents the entire PE market. The Prequin information is not transparent and cannot be independently verified. The funds included in the private capital data shown report their performance voluntarily and therefore the data often reflects an under reporting of PE losses with a bias towards funds with track records of success.

Although direct loans are senior in the capital stack and secured by collateral, there is no assurance the collateral will be sufficient in the event of default.
