Korea Post seeks senior loan fund managers

The South Korean government agency is seeking to commit up to $240 million to sponsored lending funds.

Korea Post has issued a request for proposal for domestic senior loan managers. It plans to commit a total of KRW$300 billion ($241.9 million; €220.0 million) to two fund managers.

The successful firms should manage funds which have invested more than 80 percent in senior acquisition financing transactions (including re-financing transactions), with up to 30 percent of their fund capital invested in overseas deals.

The submission deadline is 5 June 2020 with a decision put forth to the investment committee planned for mid-July.

As illustrated below, the South Korean government agency currently has committed to funds with senior debt and subordinated / mezzanine debt strategies.
