Fortress’s Credit Private Equity funds continued to generate strong investment performance during the quarter, which contributed to a further increase in unrealized, undistributed incentive income. The Credit Opportunities Fund and Credit Opportunities Fund II had net annualized inception-to-date IRRs through quarter end of 26.9% and 16.9%, respectively. Unrealized, undistributed incentive income rose to $346 million compared with $284 million at the end of the first quarter, reflecting continued appreciation in the value of fund investments in aggregate. Additionally, the team called approximately $350 million of capital for investments and returned $770 million to investors during the quarter. Total Credit Private Equity dry powder—capital committed to the funds but not yet generating management fees—increased $1 billion from the previous quarter to $7.2 billion.Capital raising across the Credit business has been exceptional with over $3.4 billion in third-party commitments raised in the first six months of 2012. In the second quarter, the Credit business raised over $650 million, highlighted by two large managed accounts which closed out the third set of Credit Opportunities Funds. This fund complex closed with $4.3 billion of committed capital – the largest fund raise at Fortress since 2007. In addition, Fortress is raising a second Japan real estate credit fund that is on pace to attract in excess of $1 billion in total commitments, and a dedicated set of real estate opportunities funds primarily focused on the U.S. and Europe that had total third-party commitments approaching $300 million through July.
