Trafalgar Capital Advisors adds Sterling share class for Global Credit Master Fund

Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Opalesque industry updates - Specialist finance and advisory firm Trafalgar Capital Advisors will launch a hedged Sterling share class.

The new Sterling share class will be launched in conjunction with its strategic partner Peter Neal Pensions LLP for UK- and Sterling-based investors subscribing to its strong-performing TCA Global Credit Master Fund LP.

The Sterling share class is in addition to Trafalgar's current offerings of a U.S. Dollar and hedged Euro share class. The TCA Global Credit Master Fund has a Five Star rating from Morningstar.

Bob Press, Director of Trafalgar Capital Advisors, said, “ The launch of the hedged Sterling Share Class has been driven by strong demand from wealth managers and investment advisors, who have been interested in the TCA Fund for their clients, but who are constrained from subscribing to products denominated in other currencies".

Peter Neal adds, “We have been watching Trafalgar and the performance of its alternative funds for some time, anticipating being able to offer our clients this product. The TCA Global Credit Master Fund has been passed by our SIPP Trustees and we are very enthusiastic about both the Sterling share class and our strategic partnership with Trafalgar Capital Advisors".

About Trafalgar Capital Advisors

Managed by Bob Press and Andrew Garai, TCA Global focuses on privately-negotiated funding transactions for small and mid-cap publically listed companies in Europe, the Americas and Asia. Akin to a bank lending service, TCA Global offers corporate finance, advisory and short term financing arrangements normally only available to larger corporations. SMEs in the US (over 22 million in total) contribute to 55% of the nations GDP. In the UK, 65% of private sector jobs are produced by SMEs. In Britain, the US and much of Europe the lack of credit has sparked a political backlash. After taxpayers kept banks alive to ensure that economies did not collapse completely, banks are now accused of depriving businesses and households of cash – so failing to hold up their end of the bargain. Vince Cable, UK business secretary, has denounced them for not acting in the national interest. Corporate website: Source
