(Reuters) - Bain Capital's credit arm, Sankaty Advisors, is buying the debt portfolio of JPMorgan's principal investment group for more than $1 billion, the Financial Times reported.

Sankaty won an auction for JPMorgan Chase & Co's Global Special Opportunities Group portfolio, which contains junior loans in North America and Europe as well as securities in Asia and Australia, the newspaper said. (on.ft.com/1AnRNHZ)

The deal is set to be announced on Monday, FT said.

Sankaty, which has $24 billion under management, is likely to hire many of the JPMorgan employees who built the portfolio, the report said.
