CFI Partners, LLC ("CFI Partners") is a predominantly credit focused investment management firm founded in 2005. Our culture and investment process are rooted in three defining principles: rigorous fundamental analysis, strong risk management, and ongoing portfolio optimization. We are based in Chicago and have assets under management* of approximately $5 billion (“AUM”). CFI Partners is a registered investment adviser** under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “Advisers Act”).
*The calculation of AUM is not based on definitions as set forth in the governing documents of any particular investment fund, vehicle, or account, and is not calculated pursuant to any regulatory definition, which may be substantially different than stated herein. AUM stated above includes approximately $3 billion of advisory account assets (as valued by the respective advisory clients as of December 31, 2021) that are attributable to advisory agreements finalized in April 2022. Such advisory asset amounts do not reflect any change in valuation, including depreciation, of the assets since the fiscal year end. CFI Partners is currently onboarding the accounts and expects to begin providing discretionary investment management services to the accounts in the near term. The balance of the AUM is attributable to CLOs managed by CFIP and is calculated using the aggregate par value of collateral assets and principal cash as management fees received by CFIP are not based on the valuation of the underlying assets. **Registration under the Advisers Act does not imply a certain level of skill or training. More information about CFI Partners, including its services, strategies, and fees can be found in our ADV Part 2, which is available without charge upon request.
