The Zagga CRED Fund

Another CREDible alternative for advisors

The Zagga CRED Fund (ZCF) is a wholesale fund that aims to provide investors with an attractive rate of return and
regular, risk-adjusted income by investing in a specifically curated portfolio of credit-vetted, mortgage-secured loans.

Fund Overview

For investors looking for an alternative to shares and traditional fixed income and property investments, the Zagga CRED Fund (ZCF) provides a CREDible avenue for portfolio diversification and regular, risk-adjusted income by investing in a specifically curated portfolio of credit-vetted, mortgage-secured loans.

The Fund seeks to achieve its targeted return through a mix of high loan-to-value ratios and stretched senior loans within its loan investments.
