ArrowMark Receives Innovation of the Year Award

Posted: 10.13.2021

DENVER, COLORADO, October 13, 2021 – ArrowMark Partners received the Innovation of the Year award at Structured Credit Investor’s Capital Relief Trades Awards 2021 ceremony held on October 13th.1 The event recognized issuers, investors, individual transactions, and other third parties for their achievements and contributions to the regulatory capital relief market over the twelve months ending September 30th. 

The award was in relation to ArrowMark’s work on COLISÉE 2020, a transaction issued by Société Générale in fourth quarter 2020. As the anchor investor and structuring lead, ArrowMark collaborated closely with the issuer to incorporate appropriate structural risk mitigants given the small/medium enterprise-dominant collateral pool and challenging macroeconomic environment. Per Société Générale, “Looking back at 2020, there were no CRT [capital relief trade] transactions specific to SMEs [small/medium enterprises]. In that sense, we had to be extremely precise in our due diligence and risk analysis.”2
