The Power of the Carlyle Platform

Carlyle opportunistically allocates assets across a range of credit strategies including direct lending, opportunistic credit, structured credit and liquid credit to companies around the world.

Income-Focused Strategy

Capture the significant and growing income premium opportunities in private markets.

Investor First Fund Structure

Closed-end interval fund, evergreen term, non-accredited, quarterly repurchases, 1099 tax reporting, and lower minimums.

1. On January 17, 2018, the SEC granted an Exemptive Order permitting the Fund to co-invest alongside Carlyle’s business development companies, Carlyle-advised private funds and Carlyle’s broker-dealer subsidiaries and/or proprietary accounts, in investments originated or negotiated by Carlyle Global Credit Investment Management, LLC, the Fund’s sub-adviser, or its affiliated advisers, subject to the conditions set forth in the Exemptive Order.

Investment Strategy

The Fund’s investment objective is to produce current income. The Fund seeks to achieve this goal by allocating capital across several credit strategies including Structured Credit, Direct Lending, Opportunistic Credit, Distressed Credit, and others as opportunities arise.

Investment Approach

The Fund will take a prudent approach to portfolio construction by capitalizing on Carlyle’s differentiated origination and underwriting platform to source opportunities across its investment strategies. Both OppenheimerFunds and Carlyle are bringing dedicated resources, well-honed risk management skills, and an absolute commitment to governance, oversight and investor advocacy.

1. Targeted contributions.
2. Charged on net assets.
3. Charged only on income net of fees.
4. Incentive fee will be charged once the hurdle rate is achieved with 100% catch up. Distributions are not guaranteed.
5. The Incentive Fee is calculated and payable quarterly in arrears based upon the Fund’s “pre-incentive fee net investment income” for the immediately preceding quarter, and is subject to a hurdle rate, expressed as a rate of return on the Fund’s Net Assets equal to 1.50% per quarter (or an annualized hurdle rate of 6.00%), subject to a “catch-up” feature. The “catch-up” provision is intended to provide the Adviser with an incentive fee of 20% on all of the Fund’s pre-incentive fee net investment income when the Fund’s pre-incentive fee net investment income reaches 1.875% of Net Assets in any calendar quarter. Thus, each calendar quarter the Fund will compare its pre-incentive fee net investment income, expressed as a percentage of the Fund’s Net Assets in respect of the relevant calendar quarter, to a hurdle rate of 1.50%. If the Fund’s pre-incentive fee net investment income is less than the hurdle rate, then the Adviser will not be paid the Incentive Fee in respect of that quarter.
