Triloma EIG Energy Income Fund - Term I

Energy is one of the largest components of GDP globally, characterized by dynamic international capital and trade flows. The global and interconnected nature of the energy markets require active management and industry expertise to manage these complex investments.

Expand Your Portfolio

Triloma EIG Energy Income Fund - Term I (the “Term Fund”) provides investors the opportunity to access a global portfolio of privately originated energy company and project debt. We believe an investment allocation in tangible real assets has long been recognized as a way to add complementary diversification to a portfolio concentrated in stocks and bonds. Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 80 percent of its total assets in debt and equity investments of energy companies and projects. Through an investment focused on energy companies and projects, investors may gain access to a core real assets category with the potential for attractive income and a low correlation with other asset classes.

An Alternative Income Strategy

The Term Fund’s investment objective is primarily to provide shareholders with current income; as secondary investment objectives, the Fund will seek to provide capital preservation and, to a lesser extent, long-term capital appreciation. While there can be no assurance that the Term Fund will achieve its investment objectives, we believe investing in senior and subordinated debt of energy companies and projects offers opportunities for risk-adjusted returns and income generation. Further, a portfolio broadly allocated among issuers, energy industry sub-sectors and geographies may reduce the risk of a downturn in any single investment having a disproportionate adverse impact on the portfolio value.

The Term Fund will have a finite offering period and lifecycle. On an interim basis, pursuant to a share repurchase program, it intends to conduct quarterly tender offers on approximately 10 percent of its weighted average number of outstanding shares in any 12-month period. The Term Fund intends to consider alternatives for providing liquidity to its shareholders on or before the fourth anniversary of the closing of its initial public offering. A liquidity event could include (1) the sale of all or substantially all of our assets and the distribution of all cash proceeds to shareholders in connection with the liquidation and dissolution of the Term Fund; (2) a merger or another transaction approved by the Term Fund’s board of trustees, in which our shareholders will receive cash or shares of another company; and (3) a liquidation through one or more distributions as the Term Fund portfolio investments are repaid or liquidated. A liquidity event may include a sale transaction with one or more affiliated investment companies managed by our advisors.

The Term Fund is managed by Triloma Energy Advisors and EIG Credit Management Company.

Differentiated by Global Opportunities

The Term Fund will invest on a global basis primarily in companies and projects located in the United States, Canada, Western Europe, Australia and Latin America. The Term Fund intends to invest a significant portion of its assets in companies and projects located outside the United States. The Term Fund expects that a substantial portion of its portfolio will consist of senior and subordinated debt, which may take the form of corporate or project loans or bonds, may be secured or unsecured and may, in some cases, be accompanied by yield enhancements. The portfolio is expected to include primarily floating-rate investments that provide protection in rising interest rate and inflationary environments. The Term Fund’s primary areas of focus will be the upstream, midstream, and power sub-sectors of the energy industry. However, EIG has the experience and technical expertise to invest across the energy value chain on a global basis. The Term Fund’s advisors broadly define the targeted energy company and project investment sub-sectors as follows: (i) upstream; (ii) midstream; (iii) downstream; (iv) power; (v) renewables; (vi) resources; (vii) infrastructure and (viii) other energy.

Shareholder Reports

Triloma EIG Energy Income Fund - Term I

Investing in Triloma EIG Energy Income Fund - Term I (the “Term Fund”) involves risks, including the risk that a shareholder may receive little or no return on its investment or that shareholder may lose part or all of its investment. The following is a list of some of the important risks factors that prospective investors should consider prior to making a decision to invest in the Term Fund. The list below is not intended to be comprehensive or exhaustive. Various other risks also apply; therefore, current and prospective shareholders should read and fully understand the prospectus, which is available here.

Liquidity Risks

  • An investment in the Term Fund is not suitable for an investor who needs access to the money they invest;
  • A shareholder should consider that they may not have access to the money they invest for an indefinite period of time;
  • Unlike most closed-end funds, the Term Fund is not listed on any securities exchange, and shareholders should not expect to be able to sell their shares regardless of how the Term Fund performs;
  • If a shareholder is able to sell their shares, the shareholder may receive less than their purchase price and the then-current net asset value (NAV) per share;
  • Although the Term Fund has implemented a share repurchase program, it may be discontinued at any time and only 2.5 percent of outstanding shares will be eligible for repurchase per quarter;

Energy Sector Risks

  • The Term Fund’s investments in energy companies expose the Term Fund to risks associated with adverse economic, environmental or regulatory occurrences affecting the energy sector, and a downturn in the energy sector could have a larger impact on the Term Fund than on funds that are broadly diversified across many sectors and industries;
  • Energy companies are subject to significant foreign, federal, state and local regulation in virtually every aspect of their operations, and their profitability could be adversely affected by changes in the regulatory environment;
  • There is an inherent risk that energy companies may incur environmental costs and liabilities due to the nature of their businesses and the substances they handle, and the possibility exists that stricter laws, regulations or enforcement policies could significantly increase the compliance costs of energy companies and the cost of any remediation that may become necessary;
  • Some energy companies may be subject to construction risk, development risk, acquisition risk or other risks arising from their strategies to expand operations through new construction or development activities, expanding operations through acquisitions, or securing additional long-term contracts;

Investment Risks

  • The Term Fund’s investments in various types of debt securities and instruments may be secured, unsecured, rated or unrated, are subject to non-payment risk, and may be speculative in nature;
  • Increases in interest rates may cause the Term Fund’s investments in fixed-rate debt securities to decline in value;
  • Generally, investments in debt securities with longer-term maturities are subject to greater volatility than investments in shorter-term obligations;
  • Subordinated investments in debt have lower priority in right of payment to any higher-ranking obligations of the borrower, and the cash flows and assets of the borrower may be insufficient to meet scheduled payments after giving effect to any higher-ranking obligations of the borrower;
  • During periods of declining interest rates, borrowers or issuers may exercise their option to prepay principal earlier than scheduled, which could reduce income and returns;
  • Below investment grade instruments (commonly referred to as “high-yield” securities or “junk bonds”) may be particularly susceptible to economic downturns, which could cause losses. Most investments in which the Term Fund invests will not be rated by any rating agency and, if they were rated, they would be rated as below investment grade quality. Investments rated below investment grade quality are generally regarded as having predominantly speculative characteristics and may carry a greater risk with respect to a borrower’s capacity to pay interest and repay principal;
  • The Term Fund’s investments in securities and other obligations of companies that are experiencing distress involve a substantial degree of risk, require a high level of analytical sophistication for successful investment and require active monitoring;
  • The Term Fund’s investments in expectation of a specific event or catalyst can result in losses if the event or catalyst fails to occur or it does not have the expected effect or does not occur in the expected timeframe;
  • The Term Fund may invest in illiquid and restricted securities that may be difficult to dispose of at a fair price;
  • The valuation of securities or instruments that lack a central trading place (such as fixed-income securities or instruments) may carry greater risk than those which trade on an exchange;
  • The value of convertible securities may be adversely affected by changes in interest rates, as well as the market price and volatility of the underlying security;
  • The value of equity securities may fluctuate in response to factors affecting the particular company in which the Term Fund invests, as well as broader market and economic conditions;
  • The Term Fund’s investments in derivatives have risks, including the imperfect correlation between the value of such instruments and the underlying assets of the Term Fund;
  • Leverage could create the opportunity for higher income and returns for shareholders, but can magnify the effect of any losses;
  • Triloma, EIG and certain of their affiliates have conflicts of interest in connection with the management of the Term Fund;
  • The Term Fund is a recently organized, non-diversified, closed-end investment company with no operating history;

Non-U.S. Investment Risks

  • The Term Fund may be materially adversely affected by market, economic and political conditions globally and in the jurisdictions and sectors in which the Term Fund invests;
  • Investments in certain securities or other instruments of non-U.S. issuers or borrowers (“Non-U.S. Securities”) may involve factors not typically associated with investing in the U.S. or other developed countries;
  • Non-U.S. Securities may be traded in undeveloped, inefficient and less liquid markets and may experience greater price volatility, illiquidity and changes in value than U.S. securities;
  • Changes in foreign currency exchange rates may adversely affect the U.S. dollar value of and returns on foreign denominated investments;
  • Credit intermediation involving entities and activities outside the regular banking system (e.g., the “shadow banking system”) could result in increased regulatory and operating costs, which could adversely affect the implementation of the Term Fund’s investment strategies and its income and returns;

Legal and Regulatory Risks

  • To qualify and remain eligible for the special tax treatment accorded to regulated investment companies (a “RIC”) and their shareholders under the Internal Revenue Code, the Term Fund must meet certain source-of-income, asset diversification and annual distribution requirements, and failure to do so could result in the loss of RIC status;
  • The Term Fund’s distributions may be funded from unlimited amounts of offering proceeds or borrowings, which may constitute a return of capital and reduce the amount of capital available to the Term Fund for investment. Any capital returned to shareholders through distributions will be distributed after payment of fees and expenses. Distributions may also be funded in significant part from the waiver of certain expenses that will be subject to future repayment by the Term Fund, thus reducing the amounts available for distribution to future shareholders; and
  • Legal and regulatory changes, such as those implemented in connection with The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, as amended (the “Dodd-Frank Act”), could occur, which may materially adversely affect the Term Fund.

Accordingly, the Term Fund should be considered a speculative investment that entails substantial risks, and a prospective investor should invest in the Term Fund only if they can sustain a complete loss of their investment.
