N.Y. Alts. Shops Launch Film Fund

May 21 2008 | 10:47am ET

Ginepri Capital, a New York-based fund of hedge funds, and SAGA Capital, a New York-based alternative investments advisory firm, has launched the SAGA/Ginepri Alpha Fund, which will invest in “complex” film slates and debt portfolios in the motion picture space.

SG Alpha will focus on the financing, analysis and securitization of mid- to high-budget independent films with committed distribution. Ginepri and SAGA have committed “significant” capital to the new venture and will structure both direct and syndicated debt for its own investments as well as the industry at large. SG will be syndicating $400 million in debt, between a group of New York and European investment banks, to leverage committed capital.

Ginepri Capital trades in the U.S. and international futures, options on futures and forward contracts space. The firm manages total assets “well into nine figures,” according to its Web site.

SAGA focuses on advising foreign corporations on nontraditional sources of funding and advising hedge funds and private individuals in the creation of financial structures to take advantage of opportunities to invest via “synthetic securitization” and “synthetic swap funding.”
