Filing of Joint Fidelity Bond Pursuant to Rule 17g-1
On behalf of Apollo Investment Corporation (the “Corporation”), a company that has elected to be treated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), I am filing the following documents pursuant to Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act:
a copy of the resolutions of a majority of the board of directors who are not “interested persons” of the Corporation (as defined in the 1940 Act) approving the amount, type, form and coverage of the joint fidelity bond, attached hereto as Exhibit A;
a copy of the Corporation’s joint insured fidelity bond, attached hereto as Exhibit B; and
a copy of the joint fidelity bond agreement between the Corporation and all of the other named insureds, attached hereto as Exhibit C.
The Corporation would have provided and maintained a single insured bond in the amount of at least $1.5 million had it not been named as an insured under a joint insured bond. The Corporation has paid a premium for a $5.0 million bond for the policy period, April 5, 2019 through April 5, 2020.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 212.822.0456.
