To provide investors with attractive risk-adjusted returns with downside protection associated with investing in a diversified portfolio of private debt opportunities (including but not limited to trade finance, structured trade, export/import finance, supply chain finance, inventory finance, factoring, receivable finance, asset based finance, bridge finance, expansion finance and project based finance opportunities) that are expected to generate low volatility returns, that are not correlated to traditional fixed income and equity strategies, which if achieved, generally exceed other investments of similar duration.

Investment Strategy
The Investment Strategy is based on four beliefs:

Growing Asset Class

Since banks withdrew from lending over a decade ago, structured finance funding has grown significantly and gained attention from investors as most debt opportunities have strong downside protection, making it an appealing alternative strategy.

Fundamental to the Global Economy

Structured finance is essential to international economic growth and development, it helps boost international investment, creates jobs and capital inflows where a country has a comparative advantage and enables countries to earn foreign exchange.

Risk Mitigation

Historically low risk asset class with underlying assets transactionally secured and enhanced through risk mitigating credit techniques, such as insurance.

Investment Diversification

The Fund’s investments will consist primarily of loans, which act as a natural hedge to other traditional asset classes, and which are backed by real assets. Returns lack the volatility of other asset classes and the risk of default is reduced with credit and collateral.
