ARCOS has raised its inaugural evergreen mid-cap private debt fund (the “Fund”) supported by large institutional investors.

ARCOS Capital (“ARCOS”) focuses on the European mid-cap senior secured loan market. ARCOS’ strategy is to invest in the lower risk end of the private debt market targeting transactions with an overall conservative risk profile. Through this strategy, ARCOS optimises the risk/return to its investors through the credit cycle. 

ARCOS ensures that the three main risk components of a transaction: (i) Corporate; (ii) Financial/Leverage; and (iii) Loan Terms, add up to a combined conservative risk investment. This strategy has historically proven to be highly resilient in downturns whilst still generating attractive returns.

ARCOS sees a significant demand for more conservative capital structures from corporates and private equity firms in the European mid-cap market as they often see a limited need to maximise the financial risk in transactions to generate their target returns from an investment.

The Fund provides a select number of large institutional investors the possibility to allocate significant amounts of capital to an attractive, resilient and to-date largely untapped part of the European mid-cap loan market.

“We are privileged to have the support of some of the largest institutional investors in Europe and look forward to a long and fruitful co-operation over the years to come. Together we will support local banks in providing conservative corporate loan structures that are more resilient through the credit cycle which benefits both the corporates and the investors,” says Johan Hultner, Founder and Managing Partner of ARCOS.
