Combining equity and credit expertise, OAFIT offers alternative asset-backed investments to suit income-oriented investors.

OAFIT is a securitized portfolio of Asset Backed Securities (‘’ABS’’). The fund applies the principals of securitization across the private debt sector and is unique in its value proposition by providing access to a range of private debt investments including, invoice and supplier finance, corporate lending, and SME loans, within a risk mitigated strategy.

OAFIT offers first-loss protection and credit enhancement to all investors across its capital structures with the principals participating in the first-loss piece of the structure.

OAFIT’s fixed income portfolio aims to provide regular distributions, and its short-term loan bias also seeks to offer liquidity in a traditionally ‘’illiquid’’ asset class. We have a 6-year audited track record and count some of the world’s largest asset managers and credit funds in our capital table. The fund is supported by ~100 FTE across its underlying funding vehicles and accesses market leading technology and architecture in its portfolio management.

Preservation of your capital and income is our first priority.
