AQUARIAN CREDIT PARTNERS NAMED BEST U.S. BOUTIQUE CLO MANAGER FOR 2022 BY CREDITFLUX
May 12, 2022, NEW YORK – Aquarian Credit Partners (“ACP”), a syndicated high-yield credit investment management platform, announced today that it was named Best U.S. Boutique CLO Manager by Creditflux at its May 10 annual awards ceremony.
ACP was formed in 2021 when Aquarian Holdings (“Aquarian”) partnered with Gallatin Loan Management and launched ACP as part of Aquarian Investments, a subsidiary of Aquarian. This is the second time that Creditflux has recognized the ACP team as Best U.S. Boutique CLO Manager, having also taken the honors in 2020.
Creditflux, a preeminent CLO industry publication and data source, calculates its Best CLO Manager awards using the averages of all the eligible CLOs from each manager. ACP currently manages two CLOs, Gallatin VIII 2017-1 and Gallatin IX 2018-1, with approximately $800 million in assets. In December, ACP successfully reset Gallatin VIII and anticipates returning to the market with new issues and resets later this year.
“We are pleased to have Creditflux recognize us as Best U.S. Boutique Manager again,” said Justin Driscoll, Chairman of ACP. “The ACP team works hard every day to deliver top returns for our investors, which this award affirms.”
Head of ACP Bo Williams added, “Having our proprietary system of review, analysis, selection, monitoring, and trading into value celebrated is a welcome reflection of the hard work and dedication of the exceptional people on our platform.”
Rudy Sahay, Managing Partner of Aquarian, said, “Aquarian’s goal is to deliver best-in-class solutions to the market. We look forward to growing ACP as we continue our build-out of Aquarian Investments.”
