Volta Finance Limited (VTA) - October 2016 monthly report



Guernsey, 21 November 2016

Volta Finance Limited (the "Company" or "Volta Finance" or "Volta") has
published its monthly report. The full report is attached to this release and
is available on Volta's website (


In October, Volta's Estimated NAV1performance was 2.0%, in line with modest
positive performance in most credit markets.

As at the end of October, the YTD NAV performance was 10.9%, adjusting for the
April and September dividend payments. After 12.4% in 2014 and 10.0% in 2015,
2016 is so far another good year for Volta and its shareholders.

In October, Volta purchased two CLO Equity positions in the secondary market
(one USD and one Euro tranche) for a total of the equivalent of €4.3m and
sold two positions (one ABS Debt asset and one emerging market credit CDO)
for a total of the equivalent of €6.1m. On average and based on standard
market assumptions, the purchases were executed with an average expected
yield close to 10.5% and the sales were traded with an average expected yield
of close to 5%.

At the end of October 2016, Volta's Estimated NAV1was €300.1m or €8.21 per
share. The GAV stood at €342.3m.

In October, mark-to-market variations2of Volta's asset classes were: -0.4% for
Synthetic Corporate Credit deals; +3.0% for CLO Equity tranches; +0.4% for
CLO Debt tranches, +1.9% for Cash Corporate Credit deals; and, -0.1% for ABS.

In October, Volta generated the equivalent3of €6.0m in interest and coupons
net of repo costs, bringing the total cash amount generated during the last
six months in terms of interest and coupons during the last six months to

Cash holdings or cash equivalent instruments at the end of October totaled
€10.6m and the Company can be considered as almost fully invested.
Considering the significant rally that occurred on CLO Debt tranches during
the summer, AXA IM expects to continue selling some of its old positions and
buying more recently issued deals in order to increase the projected yield of
the portfolio.

Since the end of October, the US Dollar appreciated somewhat against the Euro
which was beneficial to Volta as the US Dollar exposure was in the area of
30%. US mid and long term rates have increased toward levels unseen for some
time and Volta added some duration in mid-November through the US 5YR Note
Future. AXA IM believes that fixed rate exposure (at a reasonable level) can
provide a good hedge against further potential economic disappointments.

AXA IM continues to see opportunities in several structured credit sectors
including mezzanine and equity tranches of CLOs, RMBS tranches and tranches
of Cash Corporate Credit and Synthetic Corporate Credit portfolios.

Volta announced its next quarterly dividend payment: €16 cents per share to be
paid on 22 December 2016, bringing the total dividend payments for 2016 to
€62 cents per share (a yield of 8.7% based on the end of October 2016 share

It should be noted that approximately 10.9% of Volta's GAV comprises
investments in funds for which the relevant NAVs as at the month-end date are
normally available only after Volta's NAV has already been published. Volta's
policy is to publish its own NAV on as timely a basis as possible in order to
provide shareholders with Volta's appropriately up-to-date NAV information.
Consequently, such investments in funds are valued using the most recently
available NAV for each fund. The most recently available fund NAV was as at:
30 September 2016 for 7.5% of Volta's GAV and as at 31 August 2016 for 3.4%
of Volta's GAV.

"Mark-to-market variation" is calculated as the Dietz-performance of the
assets in each bucket, taking into account the Mark-to-Market of the assets
at month-end, payments received from the assets over the period, and ignoring
changes in cross currency rates. Nevertheless, some residual currency effects
could impact the aggregate value of the portfolio when aggregating each

on-euro amounts translated into euro using end-of-month cross currency rates.
