"We are proud to announce the closing of our eleventh CLO," said James Damron, senior managing director and Head of CLO Management at PPM.

CLO 5 is managed by the firm’s seasoned bank loan team, which averages 25 years of bank loan investment experience and manages $3.43 billion in bank loan assets as of September 30, 2021.
