STRATEGY AND FUND
The Green Arrow Private Debt fund arises from new credit market conditions in Italy and in particular from the requirements of mid-market companies of financing their growth. Current credit regulations, combined with high credit market volatility, create a structural supply and demand imbalance for medium term financing.
Green Arrow’s objective is to create the first credit fund dedicated to the Italian market that can lend directly to midmarket companies providing them with medium-term credit facilities tailored to specific borrowers’ needs.
The Fund seeks investments having an Enterprise Value comprised between € 50-500 Mln – arranged by the Fund itself (Primary transactions) or by leading arrangers in the relevant leveraged finance markets (Secondary transactions).
The Fund predominantly invests in Senior Secured loans and Unitranche; Bonds and Subordinated debt will also be considered on an a case by case basis.
Target current return: 5%. The Fund is not leveraged.
