Crescent Private Credit Income Corp. (CPCI) now available on iCapital Marketplace for wealth managers and advisors

MONUMENT, Colo., July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Advisors Asset Management (AAM), a leading investment solutions provider, and iCapital, the global fintech platform driving the world's alternative investment marketplace for the wealth management industry, announced today that Crescent Private Credit Income Corp. (CPCI), a non-exchange traded, perpetual-life business development company (BDC) launched by Crescent Capital Group LP (Crescent), will be made available on iCapital Marketplace.

Through this collaboration, iCapital will provide AAM with access to its global network of wealth managers and advisors on the platform, as well as the option to benefit from due diligence services supported by iCapital.

"The partnership with iCapital is considerable for CPCI as its availability now reaches more than 101,000 financial professionals on the iCapital Marketplace," said Cliff Corso, President and CIO at AAM. "The democratization of alternatives access continues to evolve with the creation of registered fund formats, such as BDCs like CPCI, and it will continue to allow financial professionals to construct a portfolio that could potentially lead to quality results for income, diversification and alpha generation."

CPCI is designed to generate current income with meaningful downside protection by providing access to a diversified private credit portfolio consisting primarily of sponsor-backed, directly originated assets, including debt securities and related equity investments, made to, or issued by U.S. middle-market companies.

"We are thrilled to partner with AAM and Crescent to offer CPCI on the iCapital Marketplace," said Dan Vene, Managing Director, Co-Founder and Co-Head of iCapital Solutions. "This partnership strengthens our dedication to connecting financial advisors with alternative investment opportunities offered by the world's leading investment providers and asset managers."

CPCI primarily invests in companies with annual earnings before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization between $35 million and $120 million, although it may invest in larger or smaller companies. To a lesser extent, CPCI may also make investments in syndicated loans and other liquid credit opportunities.

AAM began marketing and distributing CPCI in October 2023 as the U.S. retail distribution arm of SLC Management, the $277 billion (as of March 31, 2024) institutional fixed income and alternatives asset manager. Crescent is also part of the SLC Management group of companies and has been a leading middle market lender for over 30 years.

Important Information and Risk Factors
An investment in common shares (the "shares") of beneficial interest in CPCI involves a high degree of risk. You should only purchase shares of CPCI if you can afford a complete loss of your investment. Prior to making an investment, you should read the Prospectus, including the "Risk Factors" section therein, which contains a discussion of the risks and uncertainties that CPCI believes are material to its business, operating results, prospects and financial condition. These risks include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • CPCI has a limited operating history and there is no assurance that it will achieve its investment objective.
  • You should not expect to be able to sell your shares regardless of how well CPCI performs.
  • You should consider that you may not have access to the money you invest for an extended period of time.
  • CPCI does not intend to list the shares on any securities exchange, and it does not expect a secondary market in the shares to develop prior to any listing.
  • Because you may be unable to sell your shares, you will be unable to reduce your exposure in any market downturn.
  • CPC has not identified specific investments that it will make with the proceeds of this offering. As a result, this may be deemed a "blind pool" offering and you will not have the opportunity to evaluate CPCI's investments before it makes them.
  • CPCI invests primarily in privately-held companies for which very little public information exists. Such companies are also generally more vulnerable to economic downturns and may experience substantial variations in operating results.
  • The privately-held companies and below-investment-grade securities in which CPCI will primarily invest will be difficult to value and are illiquid.
  • CPCI has implemented a share repurchase program, but only a limited number of shares will be eligible for repurchase, and repurchases will be subject to available liquidity and other significant restrictions. Such share repurchase prices may be lower than the price at which you purchase CPCI's shares in this offering.
  • An investment in the shares is not suitable for you if you need access to the money you invest. See "Suitability Standards" and "Share Repurchase Program" in the Prospectus.
  • An investment in CPCI's shares is suitable only for investors with the financial ability and willingness to accept the high risks and lack of liquidity inherent in an investment in CPCI's shares.
  • CPCI cannot guarantee that it will make distributions, and if it does, it may fund such distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, return of capital to stockholders or offering proceeds. Although CPCI generally expects to fund distributions from cash flow from operations, CPCI has not established limits on the amounts it may pay from such sources. A return of capital is a return of a portion of your capital investment in our shares.
  • Distributions may also be funded in significant part, directly or indirectly, from temporary waivers or expense reimbursements borne by Crescent Cap NT Advisors, LLC, CPCI's investment adviser (the "Adviser") or its affiliates, that may be subject to reimbursement to the Adviser or its affiliates. The repayment of any amounts owed to CPCI's affiliates will reduce future distributions to which you would otherwise be entitled.
  • CPCI expects to use leverage, which will magnify the potential loss on amounts invested in it. See "Risk Factors—Risks Relating to Our Business and Structure—Our strategy involves a high degree of leverage" in the Prospectus.
  • CPCI qualifies as an "emerging growth company" as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, which means that it is eligible to take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting and disclosure requirements that are applicable to public companies that are not emerging growth companies, and Crescent Private Credit Income Fund cannot be certain if the reduced disclosure requirements applicable to emerging growth companies will make its shares less attractive to investors.
  • CPCI invests in securities that are rated below investment grade by rating agencies or that would be rated below investment grade if they were rated. Bonds that are rated below investment grade are sometimes referred to as "high yield bonds" or "junk bonds." Below investment grade securities have predominantly speculative characteristics with respect to the issuer's capacity to pay interest and repay principal. They may also be illiquid and difficult to value.
