Atalaya closes eighth special opps fund at $1.8bn hard cap
Atalaya Capital Management (Atalaya), an investment management firm focused on asset-based private debt and special opportunities, has closed its oversubscribed eighth Special Opportunities Fund (ASOF VIII) with $1.8 billion of commitments from both new and existing partnerships with investors.
Investors include public and corporate pensions, endowments, foundations, healthcare systems, sovereign wealth plans and high net worth individuals.
The ASOF strategy, originally launched in 2006, deploys an all-weather, opportunistic approach that seeks attractive risk-adjusted investments. The strategy invests primarily by opportunistically purchasing credits or assets from sellers in need of liquidity and providing credit-oriented capital solutions with a focus on asset-based opportunities. Atalaya believes ASOF is well-positioned to capitalise on attractive opportunities across its three principal asset classes: specialty finance, corporate and real estate investments.
