Retail investors seeking yield and increased diversification are adding credit alternatives to create more dynamic portfolios that go beyond the traditional 60/40 allocation.
CION Investments (CION), a leading manager of alternative investment solutions for individual investors, continues to see rapid growth for the CION Ares Diversified Credit Fund (CADC). The fund has recently passed the $1 billion milestone in total managed assets.
Mark Gatto, co-CEO of CION, commented, “The fund was created to meet the needs of individual investors who want to build a portfolio across the credit spectrum. The current low interest rate environment is leading investors to incorporate credit alternatives into their investment plans. Further, we are seeing that the ability to invest in the private companies that are the backbone of our economy resonates with our investors.”
CADC, managed by CION Ares Management, employs a dynamic asset allocation framework that offers enhanced yield and downside risk mitigation while enabling the manager to invest both aggressively and defensively depending on the market environment. CADC provides investors with direct access to Ares Management Corporation’s renowned leading global credit platform. The fund offers a unique, diversified portfolio of directly originated and liquid investments that can provide superior risk-adjusted returns, in a continuously offered interval fund structure.
Michael A. Reisner, co-CEO of CION Investments, added, “Retail investors have signaled that they want to move beyond traditional stocks and bonds, but they’ve lacked both the access and the knowledge to do so. Through our strong distribution relationships and platform partnerships, we’ve been able to connect with and educate advisors on why these types of non-traditional products may work in their clients’ investment portfolios.”
