In Uncategorized by Paulyn

The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation (“APFC”) is pleased to announce the launch of a $1,000 million hybrid credit effort named Alaska Direct Alternative Credit (“ADAC”).  Investments in ADAC will include a liquid portfolio of internally managed non-investment grade bonds and ETFs, and a private portfolio of co-investments alongside APFC’s private credit managers. ADAC and the private portfolio will be managed by the Private Income team, including Director Marcus Frampton and Senior Portfolio Manager Jared Brimberry.  The liquid portfolio will be managed by the Fixed Income team, specifically Director Jim Parise and Senior Portfolio Manager Matt Olmsted. …

…“The publicly traded non-investment grade bond portfolio will be managed by our internal fixed income team with the goal of providing a more liquid proxy to the private portfolio, allowing them to be more selective in their co-investments,” said Jim Parise, Director of Fixed Income. “Our long-term track record of outperforming our benchmarks and peers over many market cycles should translate to helping the overall ADAC portfolio achieve its performance goals.”

“The private portfolio within ADAC represents another example of the APFC using its’ scale, strategic external partnerships, and in-house expertise to create a compelling investment opportunity,” said Jared Brimberry, Senior Portfolio Manager. “We are excited to build a diversified credit portfolio alongside top-tier managers, with the benefit of removing an additional layer of fees.”
