Trade Finance Fund


London UK – Channel Capital Advisor LLP (“Channel”) is pleased to announce the closing of a trade finance fund (the “Fund”).

The Fund offers institutional investors exposure to a portfolio of global trade finance assets, conservatively managed with a tight risk control. The Fund will take advantage of the shortfall of trade finance following banks retreating from the market in the wake of the global financial crisis. The assets of the fund will be short dated, self-liquidating and facilitate the supply of goods or services. Trade finance has demonstrated historically very low default rates.

Channel is leveraging its existing debt products business network and trade finance specialist knowledge to accelerate origination of trade finance assets. The current asset pipeline includes trade receivables, inventory, and supply chain finance deals sourced globally.

Ken Owen, Portfolio Manager said, “The opportunity envisaged for this Fund is huge. Channel has a large international client network for trade finance assets that allow us to select the best risk/reward opportunities for our investors.”

Paul Wilson, Chief Investment Officer said, “We are excited to launch this new Fund, which is a milestone in the growth of Channel as an investment manager. The Fund takes advantage of synergies with out existing finance platforms and further expands our investor base. We look forward to growing the Fund, and welcome contact from interested investors and corporates”.
