Credit fundraising: January proves anything but dry for manager inflows

After a tough and unpredictable year, January may have been seen by many as an opportunity for a fresh start. But for seven managers it meant holding final closes on funds, while three undertook first closes and one a fund launch.

This promising start to 2021 raised $17.69 billion for funds in the US and Europe, although Creditflux's tally includes late announcements on funds that closed in December.

January brought a handful of fundraisings for strategies looking to capitalise on opportunistic credit. PennantPark, LCM Partners, Kennedy Lewis and Silverpeak all contributed, with LCM Partners Credit Opportunities 4 raising the most at €3.4 billion as the fund nears it’s €4 billion target size. The fund held a first close in January 2020 and anticipates a final close for the commingled fund at the end of April this year.
