About the Morgan Creek-Exos SPAC+ Fund

In a world of zero or negative interest rates, investors may be forced to take additional risk (equity, credit, illiquidity, etc.) to meet their return objectives. These additional risks are often highly correlated and can lead to significant losses as interest rates rise.

The Morgan Creek-Exos SPAC+ Fund (the "Fund") seeks to capitalize on the differentiated nature of SPACs to deliver a consistent return, an attractive risk profile, and the potential for upside, all while relying on a portfolio of Treasury bills or other cash-like collateral in trust in an effort to preserve capital.

  • We view the Fund as a total return-oriented vehicle and as a fixed income alternative from a risk perspective.
  • The Fund holds a diversified portfolio of SPACs and related derivatives.

A Collaboration with SPAC Specialists

The Fund is a collaboration between Morgan Creek Capital Management and Exos Financial, the Fund's Sub-Advisor. Exos, a new institutional finance platform, was founded by Brady Dougan, the former CEO of Credit Suisse. In addition to asset management, Exos operates a number of businesses including investment banking, sales & trading, wealth management, and M&A advisory.
