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.
The award presented to Octagon by Creditflux is not a guarantee of future investment success and does not ensure that a client will experience the same or a higher level of performance or results in the referenced vehicle or other accounts managed by Octagon. This award should not be construed as an endorsement of Octagon by any client nor is it representatives of any one client's evaluation. This is not an advertisement or offering of securities - CLOs are not offered for investment by Octagon and are only available through third-party broker-dealers. After learning of the award, Octagon purchased rights from Creditflux to publicize the award on its website.
