KATCH GLOBAL LENDING OPPORTUNITIES FUND
The Katch Global Lending Opportunities Fund is a multi-strategy investment vehicle dedicated to lending solutions for small- and mid-sized companies, such as factoring in Brazil, trade finance, bridge financing, direct lending and other account receivables. Those strategies typically present high levels of guarantees, such as collaterals, ensuring that our investors’ money is returned, with interest, even if a default occurs.
The Global Lending Opportunities Fund is a great alternative to traditional assets due to its non-correlation and diversification benefits.
Katch Investment Group is a dynamic asset management boutique offering innovative investment solutions in a constantly changing and challenging financial market environment.
The group was founded by three partners that combine in-depth financial market knowledge, a history of consistent outperformance and strong analytical skills.
In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, major central banks’ liquidity injections have inflated traditional asset classes, while new regulations have reduced the banks’ desire and capability to lend to smaller businesses. We identified these trends and decided to launch open-ended investment vehicles that invest in short-term lending and financing opportunities.
We focus on areas where the capital supply is scarce that offer relatively high and stable returns for investors.
