DENVER, May 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ArrowMark Partners (“ArrowMark”), a privately-held investment management firm, announced the close of its’ fourth dedicated regulatory capital relief fund vintage, Global Opportunity Fund IV (“Fund IV”), raising $1.1 billion of capital commitments in the commingled fund and related fund of one vehicles from a diverse range of investors, including U.S. public and corporate pensions, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, Taft-Hartley plans, multi-family offices and high net worth individuals.
In line with the prior vintages, Fund IV seeks to generate income-driven returns by investing in a diversified portfolio of regulatory capital relief securities, which are transactions issued by banks to optimize capital levels, reduce balance sheet concentrations, manage lending capacity, and respond to regulatory and/or accounting changes. As one of the largest and longest-tenured investors in the asset class, ArrowMark has invested in 89 distinct regulatory capital relief transactions representing approximately $6.5 billion of original par amount over the last 13 years.
“The closing of Fund IV is a significant milestone for the firm and a testament to the team’s partnerships with global bank issuers and our fundamental, research-driven approach to sourcing and structuring investments in the asset class,” said Kaelyn Abrell, Partner and Co-Portfolio Manager. “We are grateful for the continued confidence in the ArrowMark team and believe the risk and return profile of regulatory capital relief stands out in the current environment given the combination of high potential income generation and historical resilience during periods of macroeconomic and capital market volatility.”
