Värde Partners sluit het eerste speciale Asia Credit Fund

Met een toegezegd kapitaal van ongeveer $400 miljoen toegezegd eindigt de fondsenwerving boven het gestelde target

SINGAPORE – (BUSINESS WIRE) -Värde Partners, een toonaangevende wereldwijde onderneming voor alternatieve beleggingen, heeft vandaag de finale afsluiting van het Värde Asia Credit Fund (“het Fonds”) aangekondigd met ongeveer $400 miljoen aan vast kapitaal. Het fonds, dat zijn target van $250 miljoen heeft overschreden en na zes maanden is gesloten, is het eerste Aziatische fonds voor de onderneming.

Het Fonds heeft de flexibiliteit om te beleggen in bedrijfskredieten, speciale situaties van kredietverlening en gestresste en noodlijdende investeringen in onroerend goed in heel Azië-Pacific.

Värde verwacht dat kansen worden aangewakkerd door structurele en cyclische factoren in de regio, waaronder bezuinigingen op banken en minder ontwikkelde kapitaalmarkten, evenals sectoren met een hoge leverage en vertraagde groei in bepaalde economieën en industrieën.

Värde Partners Closes First Dedicated Asia Credit Fund

Approximately $400 Million Committed Capital Ends Fundraising Above Target

SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Värde Partners, a leading global alternative investment firm, today announced the final close of the Värde Asia Credit Fund (“the Fund”) with approximately $400 million of committed capital. The Fund, which exceeded its $250 million target and closed after six months, is the firm’s first Asia-dedicated vehicle.

The Fund has the flexibility to invest across corporate credit, special situations lending and stressed and distressed real estate investments throughout Asia Pacific.

Värde expects the opportunity set to be driven by structural and cyclical factors in the region, including bank retrenchment and less developed capital markets, as well as sectors with high leverage and slowed growth in certain economies and industries.

“Asia presents a massive opportunity for Värde to provide flexible capital and restructuring expertise while delivering value to our investors around the world,” said Ilfryn Carstairs, Partner and Global Co-Chief Investment Officer based in Singapore. “Since opening our regional headquarters in Singapore more than a decade ago, we have built institutional infrastructure in the region, thoughtfully expanded into new markets and hired local professionals in key areas of activity. This is an exciting milestone for the firm and we believe that Asia will be an increasingly important market for us in the years to come.”

Jon Fox, Partner and Global Head of Business Development and Investor Relations, said: “The terrific response to the Värde Asia Credit Fund is a reflection of the compelling opportunity set and our deep experience in the region. We are thrilled to have both new and long-time investors join us in this Fund.”

Värde has invested over $4 billion across 15 countries in Asia Pacific and has more than 40 employees in offices in Hong Kong, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. The firm launched a strategic partnership with Aditya Birla Capital in India in September and opened its fifth Asia office in Mumbai in November. The Värde Asia Credit Fund received commitments from a global and diverse base of investors, including public and private pensions, endowments, foundations and family offices across North America, Europe and Asia.
