Rockridge Private Debt Pool

The investment objective of the Rockridge Private Debt Pool is to achieve consistent risk-adjusted returns with low volatility, primarily by investing in third-party investment funds that hold a diverse portfolio of actively managed private debt and real estate-related private equity investments based primarily in Canada and/or the United States. As it is intended that the Fund will have a low correlation to publicly traded securities, investors may use the Fund as a means to diversify their total portfolio holdings.

To achieve the Fund’s investment objectives, the Fund will primarily employ a fund of funds investment strategy; however, some portfolio investments may be direct. Specifically, the Fund will invest primarily in a portfolio of third-party investment fund (“Portfolio Funds”) (such as bridging and factoring funds, mortgage investment corporations, REIT’s, infrastructure funds, and other private debt and private equity real estate funds it deems suitable) that in turn will employ various private debt and real estate related strategies, including asset-based lending (“ABL”) to companies, mortgage lending, mezzanine lending, and direct investments in real property. The portfolio will not be subject to geographical or industry sector restrictions. However, it is intended that it will focus primarily on investment in companies and assets based in Canada and/or the United States.


Goodbye 60%/40%, high-interest rates during the 80s and 90s supported the case of the “balanced” portfolio. Today, volatile equity markets coupled with increasing interest rates and low return bonds have created headwinds for the investment community. 


Hello 40%/40%/20%, Factoring and Real Estate, Mortgage Investment Corporations and Bridge Loans may provide portfolio stability with equity type returns.

Rockridge Private Debt and Real Estate Pool changed its name to Rockridge Private Debt Pool, effective May 1st, 2020.

On May 28th, 2021 the Manager, Willoughby Asset Management Inc., established two new side pocket classes (“Class BFI-A” and “Class BFI-F”) to which the Manager allocated the Bridging Income Fund LP and Bridging Mid-Market Debt Fund LP (“Bridging Funds”), held in the Rockridge Private Debt Pool. On that date, the Manager allocated and distributed the Units of Class BFI-A pro rata in accordance with the number of Class A Units issued at that time, and the Units of Class BFI-F pro rata in accordance with the number of Class F Units issued at that time. As such, the Rockridge Class F above returns from May 31st, 2021 onward does not include the returns of the Bridging Funds. The fair value of the side pocketed investments are determined by the Manager in accordance with the Fund’s valuation procedures (see the Offering Memorandum Item 5.1 “Terms of Securities – Valuation Procedures”). The ultimate proceeds realized from these side pocketed investments could differ and the difference could be significant. See the Offering Memorandum Item 5.3 “Side Pockets”.

As of December 31st, 2021, the value was reviewed and adjusted to 34% of that value based on information that became available relating to the recovery rate expected from the funds. The values will be updated once the net asset value of the funds are released by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the receiver of Bridging Finance Inc.
