Princeton Alternative Income Fund Saga Devolves Into SEC Investigation, RICO Lawsuit
The demise of the Princeton Alternative Income Fund has resulted in several ugly twists and turns. In addition to a slew of lawsuits, the bankrupt hedge fund is also being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Matthew Cantor, who is serving as the bankruptcy Trustee, cited the SEC’s probe as one of many reasons he filed a RICO lawsuit late last month against individuals and businesses formerly involved with the hedge fund.
Princeton’s trouble snowballed after the very public collapse of Argon Credit of which Princeton was a major investor. That in turn created a conflict with Ranger Direct Lending, a UK fund that had invested in Princeton. The end result is that Argon and Princeton filed for bankruptcy while Ranger was wound down.Last modified: August 18, 2019
