Our Strategies

Regulatory Capital Relief Strategy

With a 13-year track record, ArrowMark is one of the largest and longest-tenured investors in the regulatory capital relief or risk-sharing market, partnering with the leading global bank issuers. We employ an opportunistic approach to capitalize on the asset class’s unique combination of high, income-driven yields with historical resilience during periods of market stress.

Managed by seasoned investors with 40 years combined experience and track record in the asset class, our Denver and London-based securitized credit team’s extensive sourcing network, adept security structuring, and ability to leverage the fundamental research capabilities of the broader ArrowMark investment team support the strategy’s highly selective investment process. The depth of the firm’s investment resources and emphasis on risk management is reinforced by historical investments across a diversity of global bank issuers, transaction structures, and collateral types.

We manage commingled funds, separately managed accounts, funds of one and a closed-end investment company for a variety of U.S. and global based institutional investors, endowments, and foundations, as well as private wealth advisors with differing risk/return targets and liquidity parameters.
