Volta Finance Limited (the “Company” or “Volta”) is a closed-ended limited liability company registered in Guernsey under the Companies (Guernsey) Law, 2008 (as amended). The Company is an authorised collective investment scheme in Guernsey, regulated under The Protection of Investors (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1987.
Volta’s investment objectives are to seek to preserve capital across the credit cycle and to provide a stable stream of income to its Shareholders through dividends that it expects to distribute on a quarterly basis.
Subject to the risk factors that are described in the Summary Document and in the Prospectus dated 4 December 2006, it seeks to attain its investment objectives predominantly through investment in a diversified portfolio of structured finance assets. Volta's investment strategy focuses on direct and indirect investments in, and exposures to, a variety of assets selected for the purpose of generating cash flows for the Company. The assets that Volta may invest in either directly or indirectly include but are not limited to: corporate credits; sovereign and quasi-sovereign debt; residential mortgage loans; commercial mortgage loans; automobile loans; student loans; credit card receivables; leases; and debt and equity interests in infrastructure projects (the “Underlying Assets”). Volta’s approach to investment is through vehicles and arrangements that essentially provide leveraged exposure to portfolios of such Underlying Assets. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve its investment objectives.

Volta has appointed AXA Investment Managers Paris ("AXA IM") as the Investment Manager of all its assets.
