Bear Hedge Funds Update

by Calculated Risk on 6/22/2007 02:40:00 PM

Tanta posted on the Bear Stearns bailout this morning. Apparently this bailout is only for the less leveraged Bear Stearns Hedge fund: High-Grade Structured Credit Strategies Fund.

Assets are apparently being sold from the other fund - High Grade Structured Credit Strategies Enhanced Leverage Fund. CNBC is reporting that Cantor Fitzgerald has circulated a bid list for $400 million in debt securities from the Leverage Fund, and some bids are 10 cents on the dollar.
