The Green Arrow Direct Lending fund arises from new credit market conditions in Italy and in particular from the requirements of mid-market companies of financing their growth. Current credit regulations, combined with high credit market volatility, create a structural supply and demand imbalance for medium term financing.
The Fund seeks investments having an Enterprise Value comprised between € 50-500 Mln – arranged by the Fund itself (Primary transactions) or by leading arrangers in the relevant leveraged finance markets (Secondary transactions).
The Fund predominantly invests in Senior Secured loans and Unitranche; Bonds and Subordinated debt will also be considered on an a case by case basis.
Target current return: 5%. The Fund is not leveraged.
