ING Capital Advisors is looking to unveil products this year specifically geared to gain investment from pension and endowment funds. Michael Campbell, managing partner, said the fund has been working on addressing the market for several years and "plans will be closer to fruition in the next 12 months," said Campbell. He said tapping the markets is a major initiative of the firm. "The pension fund market is a huge segment and to date very little as been invested in the loan market," said Campbell, explaining that penion and endowment funds invest most heavily in the high yield and equity markets. The new initiative will be part of Campbell's efforts after his promotion from chief credit officer to managing partner two weeks ago.
