RELATED TOPICS​

Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) has acquired a minority ownership stake in the holding company of DFG Investment Advisers (DFG), a New York-based asset management firm specialising in structured and alternative credit products.

DFG's team has multifaceted expertise in structured credit and leveraged corporate debt markets, and a shared investment philosophy centred on fundamental analysis, risk management and active portfolio monitoring. The firm currently serves an institutional client base in North America and Asia and is expanding its global clientele.
 
AIMCo's collaboration with DFG spans more than six years, first initiated as part of AIMCo's Fixed Income strategy in 2009. Since that time, the relationship has grown to include investments in a range of strategies across public markets, with an emphasis on DFG's deep expertise in alternative credit products.
 
"DFG is a trusted manager that has provided AIMCo with strong performance and comprehensive analytical support. DFG's commitment to their clients aligns with AIMCo's values and approach to investing. I am pleased that this transaction will deepen the relationship between the two organisations," says Dale MacMaster, AIMCo's Chief Investment Officer.
 
Peter Pontikes, AIMCo's Senior Vice President of Public Equities, adds: "DFG's unique expertise in structured and alternative credit products positions them well to capitalize on opportunities that have arisen due to recent regulatory changes." 
 
Volkan Kurtas, DFG's Founder and Managing Partner, says: "We at DFG are thrilled to be partnering with AIMCo, an internationally respected pension and endowment institutional asset manager.  DFG's culture and values are integral to our approach to investing, a perspective and approach that is shared with AIMCo. As investors, both AIMCo and DFG appreciate the privilege of managing our respective clients' funds, and together we will continue to strive to add value."
