Bain Capital hits first close for Asia debt fund at $557 mn

06 September, 2017

Bain Capital made the first close to its Asia credit fund, raising $557 million as the private equity firm looks to scoop up distressed debt in China and other countries in the region.

Bain Capital Special Situations Asia LP, as the fund is called, tapped 38 investors so far for the fund, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission dated Sept 5.

Reuters previously reported the firm was looking to raise $1 billion for its first Asia-focused credit fund to capitalise on distressed debt and direct lending opportunities, according to people familiar with the plans.

The firm made its first foray into Chinese distressed debt in May, buying a portfolio of real estate non-performing loans (NPLs) worth $200 million in principal from China Huarong Asset Management Co Ltd, the country’s biggest distressed debt manager.
