Blue Gate Capital launches secured income fund


Blue Gate Capital has launched a fund for investors to capitalise on current market conditions. 

The Blue Gate Secured Income Fund is in the process of raising an initial GBP10m of equity. 

It has been designed to provide an alternative product that offers a high yielding regular income to investors quarterly while protecting capital.

The fund is offering annual returns to investors of nine per cent, 2.25 per cent paid quarterly. Any income in excess of nine per cent per annum will be rolled up in the fund and be distributed to investors at the end of the fund’s life.

Tamlyn Stone, director of Blue Gate Capital, says: “As poor returns are set to continue for the foreseeable future and the global recovery may not be as strong as many have predicted, there is still considerable value in this area over the medium term for investors. 

“This structure addresses the needs of investors today in a market of low interest rates, market volatility and insecurity by providing a fund that is not correlated to traditional asset classes such as equities, bonds or property and adds a level of diversification to investor’s portfolios.”

The fund derives its income from lending money on an annual fixed rate to financial institutions who lend short term finance secured against property assets.

As the fund is secured against property and has a fixed coupon the fund will not be affected by stock market movements or fluctuations in interest rates.

It is open to private investors and institutions in the UK and overseas as well as Sipp and Ssas investors. The minimum investment for the fund is GBP50,000.
