Aquarian Credit Partners Named 2023 Best U.S. Boutique CLO Manager by Creditflux
May 10, 2023 — 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 3 annual awards ceremony. This is the second year in a row that ACP has won the honor.
ACP, which is part of the Aquarian Investments subsidiary of Aquarian Holdings (“Aquarian”), has been recognized by Creditflux for the third time as Best U.S. Boutique CLO Manager, having taken the honor in both 2020 and 2022.
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 CLO VIII 2017-1, Ltd. (reset in 2021) and Gallatin CLO IX 2018-1, Ltd.
“We are once again pleased that Creditflux has recognized Aquarian Credit Partners as Best U.S. Boutique Manager,” said Justin Driscoll, Chairman of ACP. “It speaks to the hard work that the ACP team does every day to identify value for our investors, a track record we will continue to build as we bring new CLOs to market.”
Head of ACP Bo Williams added, “The last few years in the loan market have been extremely volatile and have really tested investment methodologies. It is affirming to see Creditflux again acknowledge the success of our consistent and systematic approach to managing credit with these back-to-back awards.”
Rudy Sahay, Managing Partner of Aquarian, said, “Aquarian is committed to providing the market with best-in-class product offerings. The growth we are working on with the ACP team this year will extend and scale that recognized excellence.”
