Invico Capital Corporation


Investments in Focus


Product Overview

Invico Capital Corporation is an award-winning Canadian investment fund management firm providing alternative investing and financing solutions in Canada and the U.S. Founded in 2005 with the objective of introducing alternative investment opportunities to retail investors, Invico offers a range of private debt, private equity, and energy financing solutions that assist corporations in pursuing strategic acquisitions, financing capital expenditures and growth programs, and supporting working capital requirements. Invico is a registered Portfolio Manager (PM), Investment Fund Manager (IFM), and Exempt Market Dealer (EMD) and is an official signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The firm currently manages over $1.77 billion in private capital (as at April 30, 2022) and is the IFM for seven funds, including its award-winning signature fund, the Invico Diversified Income Fund (“IDIF”), which has over $378 million in assets under management (as at April 30, 2022).
With an almost nine-year track record of performance, IDIF offers investors a unique opportunity to access a well-diversified portfolio of high-yielding assets and monthly cash flow from a combination of two-thirds privately negotiated debt and one-third direct participation in oil and gas wells. Over the years, IDIF’s differentiated alternative investment product strategy has proven itself despite challenging market conditions; in fact, since its inception in 2013, the Fund has never missed a redemption request or monthly distribution and recently celebrated its 100th consecutive distribution. In Q1 2022, IDIF also announced an additional distribution to unitholders of record as at March 31, 2022, reflecting a period of value growth directly attributable to its energy exposure. IDIF has been recognized for excellence in the industry and placed second in the Best 3-Year and Best 5-Year, Private Debt categories at the 2021 Canadian Hedge Fund Awards (CHFA), as well as third in the Best 3-Year and second in the Best 5-Year, Private Debt categories at the 2019 CHFA, and placed first in the Diversified Mature Category at the 2016 Private Capital Markets Awards.

Investment Criteria

IDIF was established to provide investors with a high level of current income and the potential for moderate capital appreciation by investing in high-yielding opportunities in a well-diversified manner. Invico’s Investment Team accomplishes this via a portfolio of niche private debt investments and energy working interests across North America. IDIF focuses on partnering with well-established companies and qualified management teams that have a track record of success and need financing to accomplish a transformational event, such as a significant expansion or strategic acquisition.
IDIF leverages a flexible investment approach that allows us to customize financing options to fit the needs of almost any business or transaction and can enable an expedited close in as little as three weeks from the time of term sheet execution. Due to our speed and flexibility, IDIF has been able to capitalize on investment opportunities quickly and provide investors with unique financial opportunities that traditional banks or competitive funds often overlook. While some deals are closed in heavily invested sectors, like energy and real estate, we can play up to our nimbleness by investing in niche markets, like film production and energy technology, ensuring our investors can access diversified opportunities.
