Investment
management

With extensive hands-on experience in corporate lending, amicaa’s team is well positioned to capture the growing opportunities in the evolving market for privately negotiated corporate loans — a $1 trillion market previously dominated by banks.

As a new asset class for many investors, Australian corporate credit can provide a stable foundation for a diversified investment portfolio — paying regular income while preserving capital, and delivering stronger total returns than many other ‘defensive’ investments.

The key is to invest with a team with the experience to not only identify high quality corporate borrowers, but to deeply understand and manage investment risks. It’s these two skills that make amicaa’s strategies a compelling choice.
