Aquatine V is Lakemore's fifth platform fund that focuses on investing in supermajority control equity positions of US CLOs. The fund expects to have approximately 15 supermajority CLO equity positions once it is fully deployed.

The Fund has taken advantage of market volatility to deploy a significant portion of its capital and has delivered strong performance thus far. As markets continue to evolve, Lakemore plans to continue deploying capital. In 2024, they expanded their network by forming strategic partnerships with seven top-tier US CLO collateral managers.

With the successful final close of Aquatine V Fund and its strong performance to date, Lakemore continues to solidify its position as a leading private credit investment firm. Investors can trust in their commitment to delivering high risk-adjusted returns across various market cycles.
