BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HighVista Strategies, LLC (“HighVista”) announced the final close of its HighVista Opportunistic Private Credit Fund II LP (“Fund II”). HighVista closed on $450mm of capital for Fund II and related entities, exceeding the target for the fundraise. Fund II had strong support from existing clients including pension funds, endowments and foundations, and family offices.
Continuing with the strategy that HighVista pursued in its predecessor credit fund, Fund II will take a multi-strategy approach and invest in real estate-backed credits, corporate credits, and uncorrelated credit opportunities. HighVista has experience investing in a broad range of specialized credit markets, several of which have become more attractive in the current economic environment.
“The strong conviction our team brings to opportunistic credit investing, coupled with our team’s experience and pattern recognition, will serve our investors well going forward, and we would like to thank them for their ongoing support,” said Raphi Schorr, Partner and Deputy Chief Investment Officer at HighVista. “We are excited by the opportunity set that the team is seeing today.”
“HighVista invests in hard-to-access and dislocated areas where our significant experience, domain expertise, and execution capabilities help us identify bespoke lending opportunities,” said Ben Radinsky, Principal at HighVista. “Typically, these are markets that are undercapitalized when compared to direct lending or traditional credit markets, offering the potential for higher risk-adjusted returns for those who can underwrite and structure transactions appropriately.”
HighVista’s investment team attributes the nearly two decades of experience investing across economic cycles and major market dislocations, including the Global Financial Crisis and the European sovereign debt crisis, as a key factor in being able to successfully navigate increasingly uncertain markets globally.
