“Our core CLO business continues to show growth with six CLOs closed in 2015 across Europe and the US. Through these CLOs and the 3i Global Floating Rate Income Fund, we raised circa $3.2bn of AUM globally in 2015.”

John Fraser, Managing Partner 3iDM US, commented: 
“Jamestown VIII is the third US CLO we closed in 2015, bringing our total raised to over $1.7bn in the US.”
