MISSION WOODS, Kan., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Palmer Square Capital Management, an investment management firm that provides structured credit, corporate credit and hedge fund strategies such as long/short credit to a wide range of investors, today announced that it has closed on its fifth Collateralized Loan Obligation ("CLO").

Palmer Square CLO 2015-2, Ltd., which closed July 23, 2015, is a $408.15 million issuance.  Citigroup Global Markets Inc. acted as lead arranger on the transaction.  Similar to four recent Palmer Square transactions, this CLO is designed to invest primarily in institutional senior secured bank loans. 

"We are pleased to offer a credit-related investment that is not only floating rate in nature, but has the potential to also offer significant yield and has historically had minimal credit risk," said Christopher D. Long, president of Palmer Square Capital Management.  "Demand for alternative credit solutions continues to be strong as investors are looking for new ways to increase yield in this low interest rate environment."

"We believe the execution of this investment is testament to the strength of our corporate and structured credit team, diversified platform, and our continued focus on ensuring incentive alignment with our institutional and registered investment advisor clientele.  Palmer Square's goal is to continue to exploit relative value opportunities across both traditional and non-traditional credit strategies such as investing in and managing CLOs and long/short credit."
