Medalist Partners Continues to Expand its CLO Platform with Latest Issuance

October 12, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 12, 2021--

Medalist Partners is pleased to announce that it has priced Medalist Partners Corporate Finance (MPCF) CLO VII, a Collateralized Loan Obligation (“CLO”) totaling $309 million. This is the seventh deal issued by MPCF and brings current CLO AUM for the manager to approximately $1.4 billion.

The transaction has been structured with a five-year reinvestment period and was arranged by BNP Paribas. Medalist’s CLO team is led by Jeremy Phipps and Shawn O’Leary, both of whom serve as co-portfolio managers and oversee the day-to-day management of MPCF’s portfolios.

Jeremy Phipps said: “We are pleased to have successfully priced our seventh CLO with the strong support of both new and existing institutional investors.”

Greg Richter, Medalist Partners CEO, added: “We are excited to accelerate the growth of our CLO platform. Following the buyout of our minority partner in the platform earlier this year and increasing recognition of our team’s strong performance track record, we believe we are ideally positioned to capitalize on market opportunities going forward as a more active issuer in the market.”
