3i, an international investment manager, today confirms the closing of a collateralised loan obligation (“CLO”) fund, Jamestown VI (“Jamestown VI”). Jamestown VI is a $750 million CLO and 3iDM’s first US CLO of the year.

Jamestown VI will principally focus on investing in US dollar denominated senior secured loans issued by sub-investment grade rated U.S domiciled companies.

Jeremy Ghose, CEO and Managing Partner of 3i Debt Management said:
“We have continued to see appetite from investors in the early part of 2015 and are pleased to have raised our first US CLO fund of 2015. Jamestown VI is our biggest CLO to date and we continue to benefit from strong investor following.”

John Fraser, Managing Partner 3iDM US, commented:
“Jamestown VI is our first US CLO this year and we were pleased with the support from both debt and equity investors which enabled us to upsize the fund to $750m.”
3i Debt Management has grown substantially since it was established in 2011. At 30 September 2014 3iDM managed 32 funds and had total assets under management of approx. $11 billion, on a pro forma basis.
