Asia Private Credit Fund (“APCF” or “Fund I”) was launched by Adamas in March 2010. Our main objective is to act as an alternative liquidity provider to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), providing them with value added support and partner with these SMEs to realise the full potential of their business in response to an absence of traditional financing. We focus on contractual pay-off mechanism in every investment to supplement other market exit mechanisms. APCF is the only Asia fund among 11,000 funds to be ranked in the category of "A" by Skyrank, the most comprehensive hedge fund rating system in the industry. APCF has also been recognised as the Best Asia Mezzanine Fund of the Year by Acquisition International Magazine in conjunction with Preqin, a leading source of data and intelligence for the alternative asset industry. Award is based on votes from Preqin, Acquisition International Magazine subscribers and the global hedge fund/PE community.
The current dislocation in the capital markets, driven both by technical and fundamental factors, presents unique investment opportunities in the corporate equity and credit markets. This is particularly pronounced in Asia, where our capital markets are characterised by incompleteness and a lack of transparency. Market liquidity was severely drained out during the global financial crisis. Banks, nonbank financial institutions and funds that were active in the liquidity provision space have been divesting their noncore assets. We have a very good entry point to access good investment opportunities and generate solid returns for our investors. Our bite size ranges between US$5 million and US$20 million, accordingly we operate in a space which other firms find too small. This fund is currently closed for investments.
