Corporate Direct Lending

With Baloise as a substantial anchor investor in the Baloise Corporate Direct Lending Fund, investors are given access, via the fund’s separate feeder, to two top-tier corporate direct lending managers, Hayfin and Permira, that provide debt financing for European private-sector companies. With an estimated expected net return1 of 300–500 bps above the EURIBOR and less of a risk compared to high-yield bonds, this asset class offers qualified investors an interesting and profitable instrument for diversifying traditional portfolios. The innovative structure also offers semi-liquidity in an otherwise illiquid asset class (after an initial Lock-up period).

Infrastructure Debt Fund

The Baloise Infrastructure Debt Fund provides qualified investors with access to the three top-tier infrastructure managers Infranity, MEAG and Macquarie, which provide debt financing for European infrastructure projects. Infrastructure debt is a suitable alternative to government bonds with comparable risk but higher expected returns. With Baloise as a substantial anchor investor and an exposure of over EUR 1.2 billion, investors benefit from a strong alignment of interest and the long-standing expertise of the Baloise Asset Management investment team.
