CION Investments believes the combination of continued low yields and a challenging environment for fixed income has investors incorporating income alternatives into their portfolios in record numbers.
CION Investments (CION), a leading manager of alternative investment solutions for individual investors, reports that the CION Ares Diversified Credit Fund (“CADC” or the “Fund”) saw its highest quarterly capital raise since inception during Q2 2021. As of June 30, 2021, the Fund had $1.6 billion in total managed assets after inflows of approximately $245 million in the second quarter.
Mark Gatto, co-CEO of CION, commented, “We continue to see strong adoption of the Fund, as investors seek out income alternatives that can provide yield and enhance diversification. Because CADC invests across the credit spectrum, it can quickly capitalize on opportunities as they arise. The inflows this quarter are evidence that investors were impressed with our Fund’s resiliency throughout the challenges of the past year and recognize the value of our unique strategy. We saw inflows from across the full range of our extensive distribution network, from independent RIAs to wirehouses and IBDs.”
CADC, managed by CION Ares Management, LLC, creates a diversified portfolio by combining directly-originated illiquid credits and liquid investments to seek superior risk-adjusted returns, in a continuously offered interval fund structure. The Fund employs a dynamic asset allocation framework that enables the manager to respond to changing market environments with both aggressive and defensive strategies.
