CVC Credit Partners European Opportunities is a closed-end investment company, domiciled in Jersey and listed in London.

The portfolio is split into two pools, performing credit and credit opportunities.

Investment summary

CVC Credit Partners European Opportunities (CCPEOL) aims to achieve a blend of capital growth and income (it targets gross total returns of 8–12% pa, with c 5pp from income). The portfolio is positioned defensively, mainly in senior secured debt of large issuers (average EBITDA above €500m) from Western Europe. Long-term NAV net total return (TR) performance remains broadly intact at 6.4% pa over three years (vs SP ELLI at 3.5% pa), despite weaker performance during the Q418 downturn. Currently both share classes offer a dividend yield in excess of 5%, largely covered by coupon income according to our estimates.
