Gordon Brothers Unit Plans Second Debt Fund

Jun 21 2012 | 12:17pm ET

GB Merchant Partners is gearing up to launch its second debt fund.

GB, the investment division of Boston-based Gordon Brothers, hopes to raise $500 million for its 1903 Debt Fund 2, Hedge Fund Alert reports. Like its predecessor, the new vehicle will invest exclusively in junior secured loans of between $10 million and $50 million to mid-sized companies. It will also be able to buy on the secondary market.

If GB hits its fundraising target, 1903 2 will be nearly three times the size of its first debt fund, which closed in 2006. GB also manages $485 million in a stock fund, the 1903 Equity Fund.
