CION Investments (“CION”), a leading manager of alternative investment solutions for individual investors, today announced that the CION Ares Diversified Credit Fund (“CADC” or the “Fund”) has raised $390 million during a record first quarter. This milestone brings the Fund’s total managed assets to $3.1 billion.
CION co-CEO Michael A. Reisner noted, “We are thrilled with the growth we’ve seen in this Fund and its reception from our partners. This is a strong recognition of the Fund’s value proposition, the appetite investors have for credit alternatives beyond fixed income, and the investment team’s rigorous approach to identifying valuable opportunities as the market shifts. The floating rate nature of the instruments held by the Fund has driven strong investor demand as rates continue to rise and the trajectory of increases remains uncertain.”
CADC invests in illiquid and liquid credit investments, seeking superior risk-adjusted returns across various market cycles in a continuously offered interval fund structure. The Fund employs a dynamic asset allocation framework, leveraging the advisor’s extensive operational resources, infrastructure and origination network. The Fund is currently distributed through a broad universe of RIAs, independent broker-dealers, and wirehouses.
Michael continued, “Our scale, operational expertise, and alternatives experience is something we feel is a true differentiator. We’ve set out to provide the individual investors with access to the alternative credit spectrum in one fund, without high minimums or a multi-year lock-up, and we believe we’re accomplishing this goal. We are excited to continue working with our partners as they seek to help investors navigate what is expected to be a volatile market environment moving forward.”
