A feeder fund (“Feeder”) is an investment vehicle, often a limited partnership, that pools capital commitments of investors and invests or “feeds” such capital into an umbrella fund, often called a master fund (“Master”), which directs and oversees all investments held in the Master portfolio. A Master/Feeder structure is commonly used by private equity funds or hedge funds (“Funds”) to pool investment capital.

As a result of the heightened regulatory focus on banks and emphasis on enhanced underwriting standards for leveraged loans, investor interest has created an opportunity for non-bank institutions to provide investment opportunities to such institutional investors. Similarly, the gradual disintermediation of banking and exit from higher risk areas of lending has created opportunities for various non-bank institutions to increase their market share in respect of highly leveraged loans.

A subscription credit facility (a “Facility”) is an extension of credit by a bank, financing company, or other credit institution (each, a “Lender”) to a closed end real estate or private equity fund (the “Fund”). The defining characteristic of such a Facility is the collateral package securing the Fund’s repayment of the Lender’s extension of credit, which is composed of the unfunded commitments (equity or debt “Capital Commitments”) of the limited partners to the Fund (the “Investors”) to make capital contributions (“Capital Contributions”) when called upon by the Fund’s general partner, not the underlying investment assets of the Fund itself.

The past year was an active year for Fund Financings, with positive growth and strong credit performance through 2015 as an asset class. Capital call subscription credit facilities (each, a “Facility”) continued steady growth and followed the uptick of closed funds and capital raised through Q3 and Q4 2015. Additionally, anecdotal reports from many of the major Facility lenders (each, a “Lender”) and Mayer Brown’s practitioners noted a substantial increase in alternative fund financings, including unsecured Facilities looking to the assets of private equity funds, such as hybrid and NAV Facilities, a trend that seems to be continuing through 2016 (“Alternative Fund Financings”).
