Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund Risk Considerations

As of September 30, 2018, the Fund's annualized return since
inception for Class I shares was 5.39%. The Fund's inception date was
April 3, 2017. The total gross expense ratio is 5.15% for Class A, 6.25%
for Class C, 5.62% for Class I, and 4.17% for Class L. Performance data
quoted represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of
future results and investment returns and principal value of the Fund
will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less
than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher
than performance data quoted. The maximum sales charge is 5.75% for
Class A shares and 4.25% for Class L shares. Class C shareholders may be
subject to a contingent deferred sales charge equal to 1.00% of the
original purchase price of Class C shares redeemed during the first 365
days after their purchase.

The Fund has contractually agreed to waive its fees to the extent
that they exceed 2.60% for Class A, 3.35% for Class C, 2.35% for Class
I, and 2.85% for Class L until April 30, 2019. Without the waiver the
expenses would have been higher. Additionally, since the commencement of
Fund operations, the Adviser has voluntarily absorbed all of the
operating expenses of the Fund. The Adviser will continue to bear such
expenses on a going forward basis in its discretion and is under no
obligation to continue to do so for any specified period of time. Fund
returns, and distribution rates, would have been lower had expenses,
such as management fees, not been waived during the period.

Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past
performance is no guarantee of future results. Investing in the Fund
involves risks. Investment returns and principal value of the Fund will
fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than
their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than
performance data quoted. Visit

for current performance.

Distribution rates are not performance and reflect the current
quarter's cumulative distribution rate when annualized. The cumulative
distribution rate for the quarter presented represents the sum of the
daily dividend distribution rate as calculated by dividing the daily
dividend per share by the daily net asset value per share, for each
respective class, for each day in the quarter for which a daily dividend
is declared. Distributions are not guaranteed.

The Fund's distribution policy is to make quarterly distributions to
shareholders. The Fund intends to declare and pay distributions from its
net investment income, however, the amount of distributions that the
Fund may pay, if any, is uncertain. Distributions may be comprised of
ordinary income, net capital gains, and/or a return of capital (ROC) of
your investment in the Fund. Because the distribution rate may include a
ROC, it should not be confused with yield or income. Shareholders
should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net
profit. The Fund's distributions may be affected by numerous factors,
including but not limited to changes in realized and projected market
returns, fluctuations in market interest rates, Fund performance, and
other factors. There can be no assurance that a change in market
conditions or other factors will not result in a change in the Fund's
distribution rate or that the rate will be sustainable in the
future. Please refer to the Fund's most recent Section 19(a) notice, if
applicable, at www.griffincapital.com
for additional information regarding the composition of distributions.
Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax
basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any,
upon disposition of their shares. Distributions are not guaranteed.

The Fund is a closed-end interval fund, the shares have no history of
public trading, nor is it intended that the shares will be listed on a
public exchange at this time. No secondary market is expected to develop
for the Fund's shares. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders
only through the Fund's quarterly repurchase offers for no less than 5%
and no more than 25% of the Fund's shares outstanding at net asset value.

Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund is distributed by ALPS
Distributors, Inc. ALPS Distributors, Inc. is not affiliated with either
Griffin Capital or any of its affiliates.
