ZAIS's investments have traditionally included CLOs, RMBS, CMBS, ABS and other credit products throughout North America and Europe.

As of June 30, 2019. ZAIS Group’s AUM is primarily comprised of (i) total assets for mark-to-market funds and separately managed accounts; (ii) uncalled capital commitments, if any, for funds that are not in liquidation; and (iii) for issued structured vehicles, all assets being managed calculated per the management fee basis methodology defined in the respective vehicles’ indenture; in certain circumstances, management fees may be waived. AUM also includes assets in the warehouse phase for new ZAIS Managed CLOs and is based on actual assets managed without reductions for leverage. ZAIS Group’s June 30, 2019 AUM uses values for certain structured vehicles that have been determined prior to June 30, 2019 based on the most recent trustee report received as of June 30, 2019 for the relevant vehicle.
