Creditflux Award Disclosure Statement

In addition to awards for the best individual CLOs in different categories, there are awards for the best managers overall. These awards are based on each manager’s performance across all of their CLOs. The Creditflux Manager Awards are given according to rigorous, quantifiable and relevant measures of performance. The credit hedge fund awards are based on a methodology that rewards performance weighted by volatility relative to a fund’s redemption profile. Funds that promise liquidity need to deliver stable returns; those that lock up investors’ capital need to achieve greater absolute performance. CLO performance is measured in terms of liquidation IRR: the total return equity investors would have received if their CLO had been liquidated on December 31, 2006. This takes account of equity distributions and the net asset value of the portfolio, and rewards managers that have delivered the best returns to equity while giving a cushion to debt investors. Data for the awards calculations is submitted by managers and supported by figures from CLO-i. Finalists for the 2007 Creditflux Manager of the Year award were BlackRock, Highland Capital Management and Prudential M&G. Highland Capital Management won the award.
