Dela
  • Global team provides differentiated opportunities, ability to meet borrowers' capital needs
  • Investors seek potential for enhanced yield, diversification and relative value opportunities

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Barings, one of the world's leading asset management  firms, has announced the final close of its $1.3 billion Barings Global Private Loan Fund II, marking the conclusion of a successful capital raise within six months of launching the effort.

The fund, which attracted 26 investors from 11 countries, will invest primarily in global private senior secured corporate loans.

"Barings seeks to build lasting partnerships with our investors by adapting to their changing investment needs, and the success of our capital raise for Global Private Loan Fund II is a strong endorsement of the truly global strategy we have developed over more than two decades of investing in private credit," said Eric Lloyd, managing director and head of Barings' Global Private Finance Group. "In addition to providing differentiated investment opportunities for Barings' investors up and down the capital structure, Global Private Loan Fund II increases Barings' flexibility in providing financing solutions to meet the capital needs of middle-market borrowers throughout the U.S., Europe and Developed Asia."

With more than 70 investment professionals focused solely on private finance, Barings uses its global reach and expertise to source private credit investment opportunities across developed markets worldwide. Since 1992, the firm has built strong partnerships with private equity sponsors by supporting their needs and often investing alongside them. This global sourcing network coupled with a broad portfolio of platform companies provides Barings with ongoing opportunities to finance middle-market transactions including new platform investments, add-on acquisitions, and recapitalizations. Over the last twelve months, Barings has invested more than $1.8 billion in global private credit.

"Private credit has always offered the potential for enhanced yield, a return premium over public credit markets and portfolio diversification, but Barings' depth of expertise and global access to private credit also allows us to identify relative-value opportunities from region to region and compared to other asset classes," said Lloyd.

Barings' breadth of expertise across a wide variety of liquid and illiquid asset classes and geographic markets provides clients access to differentiated investment opportunities, meaningful portfolio diversification, uncorrelated sources of returns, and opportunities to benefit from shifting relative value within and between asset classes and geographies.

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00Pressmeddelande

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology." Checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4 have revolutionized cancer treatment and have recently gained approval in several cancer types. Despite their potential, immunotherapies face significant development challenges due to the specificity and complexity of the human immune system upon which they act. Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressmeddelande

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
