Press releases | 16 April 2020

Sydney, 16 April 2020 – Global law firm Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that it has advised Dinimus Capital on its DCF Australian Private Debt Fund (DCF), which reached a final close on Tuesday, 31 March 2020.

DCF provides investors with direct and diversified exposure to the Australian corporate credit market, a market which is serviced by traditional regulated banks and historically has not been easy to access for non-bank investors.

Dinimus Capital is an active participant in Australia's corporate credit market and has extensive experience in direct lending to Australian companies.

Dinimus Capital's Founder, Nicolas Politopoulos, said: "DCF's successful fund-raise was underpinned by strong support from our cornerstone institutional investor, which increased its initial investment in the fund, demonstrating support for DCF's strategic focus on diversified corporate credit".

Commenting on the final close, Politopoulos added that the experience of the investment team, including Atiya Habib, Ryan Donnar and Adam Howell is demonstrated by "DCF performing strongly, with net returns across the portfolio of over 12% IRR".

The Hogan Lovells team advising Dinimus Capital was led by Australian investment funds partner, James Wood and senior associate, Aisling Lynch.
