https://www.hardmanandco.com/research/corporate-research/simple-simon-says/ In this note, we explore three aspects of Volta’s portfolio, highlighting their simplification – simplified. Firstly, unless there is a compelling, opportunistic case, new investments will be in CLO structures only, and not in other structured finance instruments. The asset mix is being simplified. Second, there should be an increased weighting to AXA IM managed CLO vehicles, reflecting good performance and lower fees. The manager mix is being simplified. Third, we detail why CLOs are, at heart, simple cashflow structures, which should be viewed as such, free from the terminology that may confuse a clear story. Simpler portfolio: Over recent years, Volta has seen an increasing weight to CLO investments. It has been agreed with the board to put into policy that reinvestment, when non-CLO assets mature, will be into CLOs, making the mandate much clearer. The portfolio will be more focused, as assets roll over. Greater AXA IM managed CLO investments: AXA IM has been awarded “Best US CLO Manager of the Year” (in 2021, by Credit Flux), highlighting AXA IM’s performance. Volta is also not paying management fees on AXA IM CLO positions, and, over time, AXA IM CLOs are expected to be a higher share of the portfolio. Valuation: Volta trades at a double discount: its share price is at a 15% discount to NAV, and we believe its mark-to-market NAV includes a further sentiment-driven discount (5%-10%) to the present value of expected cashflows. Volta targets an 8% of NAV dividend (9.8% 2022E yield on current share price). Risks: Credit risk is a key sensitivity. We examined the valuation of assets, highlighting the multiple controls to ensure its validity, in our initiation note, in September 2018. The NAV is exposed to sentiment towards its own and underlying markets. Volta’s long $ position is only partially hedged. Investment summary: Volta is an investment for sophisticated investors, as there could be sentiment-driven share price volatility. Long-term returns have been good: c.9% p.a. (dividend reinvested basis) since initiation. With above-average returns on recent reinvestments, the portfolio’s past six-month cashflow (annualised) yield is c.20%. We expect near 2x 2022 dividend cover.

I see the 31.10.21 NAV highest since 28.2.20 as one would expect but way down from the 8.39 three years ago at 31.10.18 when it was E8.39 and 31.10.17 when it was E8.42. So still some way to go. Interesting the comments about the maturity wall being pushed back-something referenced before- and begs the question as to what the maturity profile of the underlying loans is and indeed how many are bullets.

Liberum on FAIR - Strong quarterly cash flows Mkt Cap £201m | Share price $0.665 | Prem/(disc) -0.8% | Div yield 15.0% Event Fair Oaks Income's NAV per share as at 31 October 2021 was $0.670, representing a 1.9% NAV total return in the month (+22.6% YTD). US and European loan markets generated returns of 0.3% and 0.2% during the month. Defaults remain very low with the 12-month trailing default rate in the US declining from 0.44% to 0.35%. European default rates also fell from 0.85% to 0.75%. Strong primary CLO issuance in the US and Europe has continued in Q4. Primary AAA spreads have remained stable at Libor +1.18% in the US and Euribor +0.99% in Europe. All of FAIR's CLO equity investments made their scheduled quarterly distributions in October. Master Fund III received $18.8m in distributions, representing a 15% increase over the same period in the prior year. The portfolio has benefited from reduced exposure to lower coupon CLO mezzanine investments and strong cash flow generation from the CLO equity positions. Two recent CLO equity investments were not scheduled to make a distribution in October and their first payments are expected in January 2022. Liberum view Strong cash flow generation leaves FAIR well-placed to maintain its 15% dividend yield. The benign default environment and tightening in CLO spreads has created a favourable environment for CLO equity performance. The outlook for defaults remains low due to strong fundamentals and the maturity profile of the market continues to be pushed. The overcollateralisation test cushion in FAIR's portfolio has steadily built up since mid-2020. We estimate an increase in the average OC test cushion in FAIR's US CLO equity investments from 2.2% in July 2020 to 3.9% currently. The arbitrage spread of the portfolio over the cost of financing has also increased steadily since mid-2020 to 1.93%, the highest level since August 2016.

Slightly strange as I can trade VTA through II at the moment with a dummy buy. I also actually hold it with II/can get a dummy sell price for them too. I can also place a limit order on the Euronext through II, as I did the last time I purchased, and got a reasonably advantageous price after a couple of days waiting. I CAN'T trade the Sterling option VTAS on II though due to there not being a KID...

Liberum; CLO Funds Favourable environment for returns Event All of the listed CLO funds have reported NAV figures for September 2021, with incremental NAV growth supported by positive credit markets and a favourable outlook for CLO returns. US and European loan markets delivered positive returns of 0.7% and 0.4% during the month. Loan default rates also continue to trend downwards. The trailing 12-month default rate in the US loan market has fallen to 0.4%, the lowest level since August 2011. Other indicators such as the distressed ratio (loans trading below 80c) also point to a benign environment. US CLO issuance reached a record in September ($130bn YTD). Primary AAA spreads have remained stable at Libor +1.19% in the US and have fallen slightly to Euribor +1.01% in Europe. Across the listed CLO funds, YTD returns range from 13.7% for Chenavari Toro Income Fund to 20.4% for Fair Oaks Income. Blackstone GSO Loan Financing recorded the highest return in September (+3.2%), partially due to upside from resets and a 0.6% NAV impact following adjustments to its mark-to-model valuation. The outlook for CLO equity returns remains favourable due to relatively benign conditions an improvement in arbitrage spreads.

Liberum on FAIR _ Fair Oaks Income Enduring arbitrage opportunity Mkt Cap £200m | Share price $0.675 | Prem/(disc) -1.2% | Div yield 14.8% Event Fair Oaks Income's NAV per share as at 30 September 2021 was $0.683, representing a 1.5% NAV total return in the month (+20.5% YTD). US and European loan markets delivered positive returns of 0.7% and 0.4% during the month. The trailing 12-month default rate in the US loan market has fallen to 0.4%, the lowest level since August 2011. US CLO issuance reached a record in September ($130bn YTD). Importantly, primary AAA spreads have remained stable at Libor +1.19% in the US and have fallen slightly to Euribor +1.01% in Europe. The manager reset the CLO liabilities of Fair Oaks Loan Funding III, reducing the weighted average coupon from Euribor +2.01% to Euribor +1.79%. The investment period has also been extended by almost three years. The expected return on the investment has increased by 4.8% pa. The current valuation of the CLO equity positions implies relatively low cash flow multiples. The average cash flow multiple of the CLO equity tranches is 3.5x, compared to 4.8x in January 2020. Liberum view FAIR's portfolio has generated strong cash flows in 2021 and we see this as a compelling entry point for a fund offering a 15% dividend yield and double-digit prospective NAV returns. The maturity profile of the market continues to be pushed out, reducing the probability of default in the near term. The arbitrage spread of the portfolio over the cost of financing has increased steadily since mid-2020 to 1.91%, the highest level since August 2016. The benign default environment and tightening in CLO spreads has created a favourable environment for CLO equity performance. We also note the pricing on the reset of Fair Oaks Loan Funding III was narrower than Blackstone's Deer Park CLO (which priced on the same day). The fund has three investments in CLOs run by the investment manager. These have demonstrated strong credit performance and achieved attractive funding costs.

I sold yesterday. Concerned about high European energy prices and any Evergrande fallout. I figure it will drop by the dividend amount when it trades ex anyway, and the spread is small so buying back in not a big deal.

Liberum on FAIR; Fair Oaks Income High cash generation Mkt Cap £198m | Share price $0.67 | Prem/(disc) 0.3% | Div yield 14.8% Event Fair Oaks Income's NAV per share as at 31 August 2021 was $0.673, representing a 0.3% NAV total return in the month (+18.7% YTD). US and European loan markets rose by 0.5% and 0.4% respectively during the month. The trailing 12-month default rate in the US loan market has fallen to its lowest level since August 2011. European default rates also remain low at 1.1%. The CLO equity positions have continued to generate strong cash flows in recent quarters. The current valuation of the CLO equity positions implies relatively low cash flow multiples. The average cash flow multiple of the CLO equity tranches is 3.4x based on the latest distribution, compared to 4.8x in January 2020. Liberum view FAIR's portfolio has generated strong cash flows in H1 2021 and we see this as a compelling entry point for a fund offering a 15% dividend yield and double-digit prospective NAV returns. The benign default environment and tightening in CLO spreads has created a favourable environment for CLO equity performance. Based on current rolling default rates, the modelled return for FAIR's portfolio is 17%. The medium-term outlook for defaults is favourable with only 5% of the US loan market maturing between now and the end of 2023. Fair Oaks is particularly well-placed to capitalise on these conditions as a control CLO equity investor.

SteMiS - I only have VTA. I think it was a bigger discount when I bought in, or perhaps it was a bigger yield, or both? In any case I thought owning more than one would be additional monitoring with no benefit

Any views of Fair v VTA ? Fair seems to have the highest yield but possibly higher risk. Or do people hold both ?

db - as per my 529 above, could you possibly add the Euronext Quote link to the Header. On offer at E6.12 over there; but I would have to pay a much larger commission and a currency charge of 1% both in and out. Would still be cheaper there than here however...

All sounds good. Decided too small an allocation at 5%; so wnated to increase. Problem as ever is the spread; also they are firmer than shown - actually 508p-533p.
