LONDON, UK - Prytania Asset Management, a Structured Credit specialist asset manager founded in 2003, is pleased to announce that its Athena Fund’s 2017 performance has been recognized by a number of leading publications and industry rankings. The Athena Fund returned +30.08% net of fees and expenses in 2017.

  • Alternative Investment Database provider Barclayhedge ranked Athena 1st in its 2017 annual ranking in the category Fixed Income – Long-only Credit which contains 109 funds.
  • Leading industry publication Creditflux currently ranks Athena 1st in its Structured Finance category (rolling 12-months performance) and also ranked the fund 2nd in its Top 10 credit hedge funds in 2017 category.
  • Well-known alternative asset industry data and intelligence provider Preqin ranked Athena 2nd in its Special Report Top Performing Hedge Funds in 2017 in the Credit Strategies category which contains 256 funds.

Mark Hale, Chief Investment Officer at Prytania said: “Active asset allocation has allowed Athena to outperform its peers in 2017. The rotation out of US CLO equity and into less followed themes in European structured credit was particularly accretive. Europe is at a more attractive part of the credit cycle versus the US, and European structured credit can be more inefficiently priced than its US counterpart. While we significantly outperformed our 10% target return in 2017 I have cautioned investors that a repeat of that level of outperformance cannot be assumed. However, Athena is off to a good start this year at +5.34% YTD February 2018.”

Athena Fund is open to new investment.
