London UK – Kenneth Owen, a senior trade finance investment professional, and Dan Luther, a trade receivables program specialist, have recently joined Channel Capital Advisors LLP (“Channel”) with a mandate to further build out its trade finance business of investing in trade finance credit product for non-bank investors.

The arrival of the two specialists marks an important milestone for Channel which provides origination, risk oversight, operational support, and investment monitoring for non-bank investors in this innovative investment.

“I’m delighted to be sourcing trade finance assets for investors at Channel”, said Ken. “There are numerous investment opportunities in trade assets given the strong motivation by banks to find co-investors. However, most non-bank investors require a specialist to assist in origination, asset evaluation, operational support, and investment monitoring. Coupled with increasing investor concern about over-priced markets, trade finance offers an excellent credit alternative with good performance metrics. When considered as an alternative to fully-priced credit product, trade finance offers a credible investment option with low default risk and diversification benefits as well”, added Ken.

Dan Luther, who will be focused as program manager of the asset portfolios added: “This is an excellent strategy for Channel to develop given their track record in corporate credit and the stability of the management platform. We look forward to providing non-bank investors a robust operational platform to invest in this exciting asset class.

“Ken and Dan have the experience, discipline, and investment track record to help us roll out this investment opportunity to non-bank investors” said Walter Gontarek, Chief Executive of Channel.
