The SCIO Opportunity Fund has been recognised as Best Performing Asset-Backed Securities Fund (<$100m) over a three-year horizon in The Hedge Fund Journal’s Alternative and Private Credit Awards 2021. The awards are based on peer groups and are judged on annualised return and Sharpe Ratio.
Greg Branch, SCIO’s Co-Founder and CIO, commented: ‘We are delighted with this recognition of the SCIO Opportunity Fund‘s long-term performance – it is testament our team’s expertise, experience, diligence, and professionalism, and reflective of SCIO’s highly-differentiated, niche approach to private credit’.
SCIO Opportunity Fund seeks to provide market-beating risk-adjusted returns by focusing on secured specialty finance loans in the underserved sub-25m market niche characterised by limited competition and high barriers to entry. In addition to the fund’s flagship Euro share class, a Sterling class is being launched this month in order to provide qualified investors with two currency options when accessing SCIO’s award-winning European secured private credit strategy.
