AXA Investment Managers closes 11th CLO in the US

AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM) today announces the close of Allegro CLO XI (Allegro XI), a new US Collateralised Loan Obligation (CLO). The closing marks AXA IM’s 11th CLO deal in the United States.

Allegro XI closed on 17 January 2020 with a notional value of USD 404 million. The non-call period for the transaction is two years, with a five year reinvestment period. Allegro XI brings AXA IM’s total CLO assets under management to approximately USD 6.3 billion*. The team’s loan platform globally now manages USD 13.3 billion*.

Yannick Le Serviget, Global Head of Leveraged Loans and Private Debt  at  AXA IM, commented: “Allegro XI was successfully priced in December 2019 with five equity investors, benefitting from attractive secondary market conditions before a Santa Rally and the refinancing wave in the primary that followed.”
