Vida Capital Announces $886 Million Closed-End Fund Focused on Insurance-Linked Strategies
AUSTIN, Texas, July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vida Capital, a leading alternative asset manager specializing in insurance-linked strategies, announced today the final close of Vida Insurance Credit Opportunity Fund II (“VICOF II” or the “Fund”) with $886 million in capital commitments.
The Fund closed ahead of its $750 million target, reflecting a robust demand for the strategy from leading institutional investors including U.S. and global public pension plans, insurance companies, foundations, family offices, and high-net worth individuals.
VICOF II will pursue the current longevity-based investment opportunity existing within the institutional life settlement and insurance-linked assets space. The Fund capitalizes on Vida’s demonstrated track record of alternative investing and life settlement acumen to construct a diversified portfolio of longevity-based investments that exhibits strong cash-flow attributes and no causal relationship to the broader financial markets.
Vida has raised three closed-end funds since its inception in 2009 and, along with its evergreen hedge fund, manages approximately $3.5 billion of equity capital.
Proskauer Rose LLP served as legal counsel in the formation of VICOF II.
