There is no guarantee these objectives and goals will be achieved.


CCIF intends to invest primarily in large, privately-negotiated loans to private middle market U.S. companies, focusing on senior secured debt investments. CCIF seeks to provide value for the investors of its feeder funds through its experienced management team and disciplined investment strategy that seeks to capitalize on the supply/demand imbalances in the market.

  • alignment


    W. P. Carey Inc. and Guggenheim Partners, LLC have made an initial commitment of $50 million in CCIF, effectively aligning their interests with those of the feeder fund shareholders.1

  • opportunity


    U.S. middle market companies are continuously looking for capital to invest into their businesses. CCIF seeks to capitalize on the shortage in supply of financing from traditional lenders by providing loans to these companies.2

2CCIF seeks to primarily invest in the senior secured debt of private middle market American companies.

Investing in privately held middle market companies involves a number of risks including reduced access to capital, diminished ability to withstand financial distress and limited liquidity.


CCIF is the master fund, which pools investor capital raised through its feeder funds—such as the current fund offering, CCIF – I. Both master and feeder share the same investment objectives and strategies. All portfolio investments are made by Carey Credit Income Fund, the master fund.

Investors can only acquire shares in a feeder fund, which invests substantially all of its assets in the common shares of CCIF at net asset value, which will vary over time. CCIF, the master fund, and the feeder funds share the same investment objectives and strategies. The imposition of fees and expenses may affect a non-traded BDC’s ability to generate income.

Master/Feeder Structure

Carey Credit Income Fund (“CCIF” or the “Master Fund”) is a master fund in a master/feeder structure. In this structure, each Feeder Fund, such as CCIF – I”, is capitalized by investors and in turn invests all or substantially all of its assets in the master fund, CCIF. Investors in CCIF – I are purchasing shares of a feeder fund, not the master fund. The investment results of CCIF – I are directly dependent on the investment results of the master fund. Further explanation of the master/feeder structure appears in the prospectus for CCIF – I under “Master/Feeder Fund Structure.”
