GREENWICH, Conn., September 06, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Point Credit Management LLC ("Eagle Point"), a specialist credit asset manager with approximately $7.2 billion of assets under management,1 announced that Eagle Point Institutional Income Fund (the "Fund"), a non-traded closed-end fund registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, reported financial results for its initial period of operations, from June 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022. In July, the Fund also declared its first monthly distribution of $0.074 per share of common equity to shareholders of record as of July 28, 2022.
Eagle Point Institutional Income Fund seeks to provide investors with an attractive income stream by investing primarily in diversified pools of senior secured loans called collateralized loan obligations ("CLOs"). Senior secured loans held by CLOs are typically floating rate loans to U.S. companies with a first lien position in the capital structure that are rated below investment grade. Through its investments in equity and junior debt securities of CLOs, the Fund seeks to provide diversified exposure to U.S. companies across various industries.
The Fund seeks to leverage Eagle Point’s established institutional investment management business to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns for the Fund’s investors over the long-term. The Fund’s investments in CLO securities, which typically pay a floating rate of interest, are expected to be more resilient than fixed rate credit investments in a rising interest rate and inflationary environment. The Fund currently offers its shares on a continuous basis in monthly closings.
Thomas Majewski, the Fund’s Chief Executive Officer, said, "Eagle Point Institutional Income Fund is designed to give investors access to institutional investment opportunities in a non-traded, SEC-registered vehicle. We believe Eagle Point’s 10-year track record and established position in the CLO marketplace will serve the Fund well in achieving its investment objectives. We look forward to working with Eagle Point Institutional Income Fund’s distribution partners to continue to educate the market on CLO investing and to make the Fund’s shares available to prospective investors."
During its first month of operations, the Fund deployed capital prudently and generated core, recurring net investment income.
