Volta Finance Ltd (LON:VTA, LON:VTAS) is a closed-ended limited liability company registered in Guernsey. The Company’s fund manager is AXA IM, a multi-expert asset management company, within the AXA Group. Hardman research analyst Mark Thomas talks us through his recent report entitled Yield (10%, covered and growing) + capital growth. The report explores how favourable market conditions mean that CLO vehicles can re-finance debt cheaply. This enhances the value of Volta Finance’s CLO equity positions, which have been increased substantially in recent years, and is expected to lift total returns by 1%-1.5% p.a. for several years. The higher cashflow further backs an already covered dividend, with a 2022E yield of 10.1%. With returns above the cost of the dividend, the NAV is growing supporting further dividend growth for this structured products investment trust.
