Destra Announces New Name for Top Performing Credit Interval Fund

July 9, 2021 GMT

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 9, 2021--

Destra Capital Management LLC (“Destra”) announced today that it has renamed its Top Performing Credit Interval Fund to now be called the “BlueBay Destra International Event-Driven Credit Fund”, (“the Fund”). The name was effective on July 7, 2021.

The Fund, which is among the most unique and distinct investment vehicles available to non-accredited investors in the United States, had the best Total Return performance for the 3 year period as of June 30, 2021 for any Credit Interval Fund in the Morningstar* database.

The Fund is Advised by Destra Capital Advisors LLC and Sub-Advised by BlueBay Asset Management LLC (“BlueBay”) and its affiliates.

“When we chose to partner with BlueBay over 3 years ago, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to bring their very best investment ideas and results to US investors,” said Dominic C. Martellaro, CEO of Destra. “That is exactly what we have done with this Fund and the results have been remarkable.”

BlueBay is a $75B alternative income manager, based out of London, England with a legacy of innovation and strong performance across all of its income strategies. The Fund is managed by the Global Leveraged Finance team at BlueBay, following their Event-Driven Credit strategy.

The Strategy pursues credit opportunities globally with a focus on Europe and North America, across five distinct sub-strategies: Restructuring, Stressed, Core Income, Opportunistic and Credit Shorts.

“Event-driven investing is by definition, idiosyncratic, company by company, credit by credit. It is extraordinarily research intensive and we have the team and bench strength here at BlueBay to maximize the opportunity it presents,” said Duncan Farley, Leveraged Finance Portfolio Manager at BlueBay and one of the three Portfolio Managers on the Fund.

BlueBay’s extensive knowledge and experience make it one of the premier event-driven credit managers in the world.

The Fund is available in Class I Shares (CEDIX), Class A Shares (CEDAX), Class L Shares (CEDLX), and Class T Shares (CEDTX). For more information, please visit www.DestraCapital.com.

Important Risk Information

Pursuant to Rule 23c-3 of the 1940 Act, the Fund must make a quarterly repurchase offer of at least 5% of the Fund’s outstanding shares. The Fund’s Board of Directors will set the actual level of the quarterly repurchase offers. It is possible that a repurchase offer may be oversubscribed, in which case shareholders may only have a portion of their shares repurchased.

Please read the prospectus for more complete information, including risks and objectives before investing. Investing in the Shares involves certain risks, including loss of principal, that are described in the “Risks” section of the prospectus, including the following:

The Fund’s Shares will not be immediately listed on an exchange in the foreseeable future, if at all. It is not anticipated that a secondary market for the Shares will develop unless the Shares are listed on an exchange. Thus, an investment in the Fund is not suitable for investors who might need access to the money they invest for several years or longer.
