3i closes Harvest XIV, its third European CLO of the year

3i Group plc (“3i” or “3i Group”), an international investment manager, today confirms the closing of a €413.9 million collateralised loan obligation (“CLO”) fund, Harvest CLO XIV (“Harvest XIV”).

Harvest XIV will principally focus on investing in senior secured loans backing private equity buyouts in Europe. The vehicle will have a final legal maturity of November 2029.

Harvest XIV is the fifth CLO that 3i has closed in 2015. In addition, in July, 3iDM launched the 3i Global Floating Rate Income Fund, an open-ended fund which will focus on investing in a diverse portfolio of primarily senior secured floating rate corporate credit assets in Europe and the US.

Jeremy Ghose, CEO and Managing Partner of 3i Debt Management said:
“We are pleased to have successfully closed Harvest XIV, our third European CLO, and fifth global CLO of 2015. 2015 is one of our best years in terms of total AUM raised with c. $2.7bn raised through these CLOs and the launch of the 3i Global Floating Rate Income Fund. The continuing good level of AUM growth is a reflection of the quality of our global platform.”

At 30 September 2015, 3iDM managed 35 funds and had total assets under management of approx. $11.3 billion.
