Nov 8 (Reuters) - European investment firm AlbaCore Capital has raised €855m for its debut credit fund, according to market sources.
The firm is aiming to raise more than €1bn for the fund, titled AlbaCore Partners I, at the beginning of next year.
So far, the firm has deployed around €750m and as of September 30 the fund’s year to date net performance is 17.3%.
Founded last year by David Allen, who previously managed Canada Pension Plan Investment Board’s European principal credit fund, AlbaCore invests in private debt and opportunistic credit across Europe.
