Catalio Capital Management raises over $85m for inaugural special situations fund

Catalio Capital Management , a multi-strategy life sciences investment firm, has held the successful close of its inaugural special situations fund, Catalio Credit Opportunities Fund I with over $85 million in commitments from new and existing institutional investors globally. 

Catalio Capital Management (Catalio), a multi-strategy life sciences investment firm, has held the successful close of its inaugural special situations fund, Catalio Credit Opportunities Fund I with over $85 million in commitments from new and existing institutional investors globally, including leading family offices, endowments, foundations and insurance companies. 

The fund has made multiple investments in 2022 and looks to capitalise on a robust pipeline of debt and structured equity opportunities during this current market dislocation and beyond.
 
Through this new vehicle, Catalio seeks to provide the next generation of breakthrough biomedical technology companies with bespoke debt and structured equity solutions that are tailored to fit their unique financing needs. The fund will equip founders and companies with the flexibility and runway required to achieve their next critical milestones — at a lower cost of capital than traditional equity — while generating strong risk-adjusted returns for investors through a combination of contractual cashflows, current income and down-side protected forms of equity participation.
 
The fund’s investment strategy leverages Catalio’s deep scientific expertise, seasoned investment team, and wVenture Partner network—comprised of 39 serial scientist-entrepreneurs at top-tier academic institutions in the US and Europe—to identify companies with high growth potential and create customised financing solutions. The fund targets small- and mid-sized private companies at various stages of growth.
   
Catalio manages more than $1 billion in assets across its private equity, private credit, and public equities strategies. The fund is the second investment vehicle that Catalio has raised in 2022, following the close of Catalio Nexus Fund III, the firm’s third flagship private equity fund, earlier this year.
