Griffin Capital Co. has announced the launch of its Institutional Access Credit Fund, an income-focused global credit solution structured as a closed-end interval fund under the Investment Company Act of 1940 that is designed to provide individual investors with a portfolio of actively managed debt securities.
The Institutional Access Credit Fund is actively managed by Bain Capital Credit, an investment manager in the global credit markets, and seeks to provide individual investors access to debt market opportunities that are typically reserved for large institutional investors.
The Institutional Access Credit Fund’s investment objective is to generate both current income and capital appreciation with low volatility and low correlation to the broader markets.
The Institutional Access Credit Fund offers investors access to a multi-strategy, global institutional credit strategy focused on delivering strong risk-adjusted returns, backed by Griffin’s extensive expertise in managing institutional portfolios designed for individual investors and Bain Capital Credit’s vast experience and worldwide presence in the global credit markets.
Assets in the Institutional Access Credit Fund’s portfolio may include bank loans, high-yield bonds, structured credit, middle-market direct loans and nonperforming loans. The Institutional Access Credit Fund’s structure as an Investment Company Act of 1940 interval fund provides individual investors with periodic liquidity due to its obligation to repurchase a limited amount of shares at certain intervals, typically quarterly.
The Institutional Access Credit Fund is available in the following share classes: Class A (CRDTX), Class C (CGCCX) and Class I (CRDIX). The fund’s registration statement was declared effective on March 30.
