London (January 17, 2019) – Orchard Global Asset Management (OGAM), an alternative investment management firm with a focus on opportunistic fixed income and structured credit transactions, today announces that it has closed the Taiga Special Opportunities Fund after raising $2.5bn in capital commitments.
