Angelo Gordon’s Twin Brook Capital Partners raises over USD2.75bn for third direct lending fund
Angelo Gordon has raised over USD2.75 billion in equity commitments for AG Direct Lending Fund III, exceeding the Fund’s USD2 billion target and making this the Firm’s largest direct lending fund to date. The Fund is managed by Twin Brook Capital Partners (Twin Brook), Angelo Gordon’s middle market direct lending subsidiary.
Consistent with Twin Brook’s distinctive approach, the Fund will seek to capitalise on the long-term investment opportunities in middle market direct lending by sourcing, underwriting, and actively managing a diversified portfolio of middle market, floating rate, senior secured loans, with a focus on providing first lien secured debt to lower middle market, sponsor-backed companies. Twin Brook targets senior financing opportunities up to USD200 million, with hold sizes across the platform ranging from USD25 million up to USD150 million. The Fund benefits from Twin Brook’s flexible product suite and customised financing solutions, which also allows for opportunistic investments in second lien, mezzanine, and equity co-investments.
The Fund received strong backing from existing Angelo Gordon investors and welcomed a number of new global institutional investors.
“I’d like to thank our new and returning investors for their support and confidence in our strategy. The robust reception this Fund received is a testament to our deep bench of talent, differentiated platform, and unique focus on the lower middle market,” says Twin Brook Founder and Managing Partner Trevor Clark. “With over USD5 billion of buying power from this Fund, our experienced team is well positioned to execute on our strong pipeline of opportunities and continue our tradition of providing leadership, support, and financing solutions to our private equity clients.”
