MPLF’s investment objective is to generate stable current income and to grow net asset value by earning a return on equity in excess of the amount distributed as dividends, through exposure to a diversified portfolio of US dollar denominated, broadly syndicated, floating rate senior secured corporate loans. MPLF has no official benchmark but performance is compared with US leveraged loan and high-yield bond indices.
Marble Point Loan Financing (MPLF) is a specialist closed-end fund that invests in leveraged loans directly and indirectly via collateralised loan obligations (CLOs) and loan accumulation facilities (LAFs) managed by Marble Point Credit Management (Marble Point). The experienced credit investment team employs a conservative, disciplined approach, seeking to achieve a low- to mid-teens percentage return on equity (ROE) over the long term. Performance has been mixed since MPLF’s initial public offering (IPO) in February 2018, with its mark-to-market pricing approach directly reflecting recent market volatility. However, its underlying portfolio has been largely unaffected and cash flow generation remains strong, allowing the manager to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities.
