Objective

The Barings Investment Grade CLO Fund seeks to provide access to attractive credit spreads and considerable protection from credit losses by investing primarily in senior CLO tranches that are carefully selected by Barings’ highly experienced structured credit team

Strategy

The fund opportunistically invests primarily in senior U.S. CLO tranches—1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th priority—with original ratings between AAA and BBB. The fund employs a fundamental credit process with experienced CLO managers, structures and collateral portfolios and seeks to capture relative value opportunities between both the primary and secondary markets and the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th priority tranches.

Who Should Invest

The fund is designed for investors seeking to benefit from a strategy that provides current income generation and, where appropriate, capital appreciation.

Risks

The value of investments and the income they provide can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The fund may hold assets that are not always readily saleable. The fund may have to lower the selling price, sell other investments or forego another more appealing investment opportunity as a result.
