About our award-winning APEX Structured Liquidity Solution

 

Since 2020 the burgeoning private credit market has flourished from USD875 billion to USD1.4 trillion in 2023 and is estimated to grow to a staggering $2.3 trillion by 2027. This emerging asset class is compelling for investors seeking diversification, attractive yields, and risk mitigation. Here are why investors should consider allocating capital to this growing asset class.


Private credit presents a compelling opportunity for investors for several reasons. Firstly, it aligns with the growing market trend, capable of absorbing institutional-sized fund flows, providing ample room for investment growth and liquidity. Secondly, it offers a hedge against emerging market currency fluctuations by providing yields in USD, thus mitigating currency risk and enhancing portfolio stability. Thirdly, as a new asset class in portfolio construction, it offers low correlation with existing portfolio constituents, facilitating diversification and reducing overall portfolio risk. Additionally, private credit typically offers attractive yields in USD, often exceeding 8%, providing investors with a source of steady income. Finally, the predictable nature of fixed income yields associated with private credit further enhances its appeal, offering investors clarity for optimal treasury management.

APEX Structured Liquidity Solution is a unique cash management solution to capitalise on the booming private credit and micro finance industries with access to developed markets while providing capital protection and risk adjusted returns in USD to institutional and private investors from emerging markets.


Key Highlights

 

  • Up to 12% in USD per annum

  • Asset collateralization 150% to 300%

  • Monthly liquidity option

  • Allows predictable fixed income cash flows while avoiding the mark to

market fluctuations that other fixed income strategies like bonds will have
