The Art of Structured Credit

Our Edge

clo pic

With a decade of experience as a multi-strategy credit manager, Sancus has navigated varying market conditions. We utilize a wide array of products, ranging from simple investments like corporate bonds to complex derivatives and structured products. Sancus is deeply experienced in structuring CLO transactions. In total, we have enabled issuance of over $3 billion of CLOs by purchasing control equity. We are heavily involved in portfolio construction, structuring features, and indenture negotiations. We live and breathe maximizing optionality for structured products investors.

Culture of Innovation

As a diversified alternative asset manager, Sancus is at the forefront of new credit products and structures. Sancus made a major contribution to the CLO market with an important innovation: Applicable Margin Reset (“AMR”). In 2015, Sancus sent a no-action letter to SEC detailing the proposed AMR mechanics. The AMR feature uses an online auction mechanism to refinance CLO liabilities via the secondary market, reducing costs, saving time and maximizing market access.
