Our Strategies

Collateralized Loan Obligations

ArrowMark’s leveraged finance investment platform was launched in 2013 and is guided by seasoned leadership with two decades of structured credit investment experience and cycle tested performance track record investing in the leverage loan asset class as both a collateral manager and investor in third-party managed Collateralized Loan Obligations (“CLOs”).

As a tenured CLO collateral manager, investor across all CLO tranches, and warehouse lender, ArrowMark has a unique view into the leveraged loan market. Integrated into the broader ArrowMark investment platform, the team collaboratively capitalizes on its extensive knowledge of loan collateral, CLO structures, and evolving market conditions to manage risk through risk-first fundamental credit analysis and active portfolio management designed to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns for investors.

We manage a diverse platform of broadly syndicated, middle market, and static CLO assets for a broad array of institutional and professional asset allocators. Additionally, our CLO Equity strategy provides investors access to majority-owned equity positions in ArrowMark’s new-issue broadly syndicated CLOs.
