TCA Global Credit Fund is the main fund of TCA Management Group, a South Florida-based hedge fund. In January, 2020, the company announced that it was shutting down the Global Credit Fund because clients asked to withdraw more cash than is available.
The announcement came after several TCA employees filed an SEC whistleblower complaint which alleges that the Global Credit Master Fund, which lends money to distressed companies, had been inflating the hedge fund’s earnings and assets since 2017. The SEC is also allegedly investigating the company.
The Global Credit Master Fund gave high interest loans directly to distressed small and medium size companies. The loans carried high-risk, but also potentially higher-than-average returns for the fund. TCA claims it made gains of 7% to 8% in recent years.
The employees who filed the whistleblower complaint say that TCA wasn’t booking losses on bad loans and recorded fee revenues that it didn’t receive.
They claim that a proper accounting of its holdings would add up to about $300 million in assets under management, not the $516 million TCA has claimed. Only about $60 million are performing loans, and return a meager 1.92% annually, the whistleblowers said.Mark Young And TCA Global Credit Fund

Like the TCA Global Credit Fund, GPB was sold as a private placement to clients seeking high dividend returns.

Clients who purchased GPB through a FINRA-registered broker-dealer are eligible to file arbitration claims to recover their investment losses.Do You Have Investment Loses With Mark Young, Royal Alliance, or the TCA Global Credit Fund?
