This is the third such transaction by Mariner's leveraged credit team and marks a total of approximately $1.5 billion in CLOs they have successfully closed in the past two years.
"We are pleased at the continued success our team has achieved with its first three CLO's, and with our ability to capitalize on the current market environment," said David Martin, co-head of Mariner's leveraged credit team.
