Octagon Investment Partners 50 wins Best new US CLO
Octagon Investment Partners 50 was awarded the Best new US CLO compared to other open-ended US CLOs that launched before 2021 but after March 31, 2020.
The award is based on a “blended performance”, defined by Creditflux as: The average ranking of each CLO relative to its peers by up to ten performance metrics. This rewards managers that achieve high returns without compromising the quality of the portfolio. Metrics are: change in junior OC; headroom in junior OC, warf; average collateral value; % of assets marked below 90, weighted average spread; cash-on-cash return to equity; and equity volatility. In addition, day-one arbitrage is considered for new CLOs.
