RIDGE CAPITAL SCA SICAV-RAIF Northern Yield

Strategy Description

RIDGE CAPITAL SCA SICAV-RAIF is a Luxembourg Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF) that focuses on Nordic corporate credit high-yield bonds (only listed bonds). The fund employs a structural leverage of 1.5x, which the lead manager experienced to be the optimal level during previous market crises. This leverage enables the fund to reduce credit risk by investing in higher-rated high-yield bonds and compensate for lower yields to achieve its return target (Euribor plus >7% net of fees). The fund primarily exposes itself to credit risk. Currency risks are hedged. The fund can hedge against spread widening. It naturally maintains a low credit duration (usually around 0.5) due to the Nordic high-yield market’s historical composition of over >75% Forward Rates Notes. The fund’s activity in the secondary market serves as a significant source of alpha, by exploiting market inefficiencies, capital structure arbitrages and event driven situations. The fund is classified as Article 8 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).
