The Fed Has Loaned $1.2 Billion from its TALF Bailout Program to a Tiny Company with Four Employees

Federal Reserve Building, Washington, D.C.Every Wall Street bailout program that the Fed has created since September 17 of last year has, according to the Fed, been ostensibly created to somehow help the average American.

According to the Fed’s Term Sheet for the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF), it’s going to “help meet the credit needs of consumers and businesses by facilitating the issuance of asset-backed securities.” Not to put too fine a point on it, but asset-backed securities and related derivatives are what blew up Wall Street in 2008, creating the worst economic downturn, at that point, since the Great Depression.

According to the Fed’s most recent H.4.1 filing, it has loaned a total $11.1 billion from TALF. Eleven percent of that money, $1.2 billion, went to a company that has 4 employees (outside of clerical workers) according to its filing with the SEC.  Much of the money was loaned at an interest rate ranging from 0.75 percent to 1.26 percent. (Compare that to the high double digit interest rates that Wall Street banks continue to charge consumers on their credit cards.) The loans are set to expire in three years.

Under the CARES Act passed by Congress, the TALF has received $10 billion in taxpayer support from the U.S. Treasury to eat any losses in this program.

On the most recent transaction data report filed by the Fed for the TALF, it lists the borrower that received the $1.2 billion total as Alta Fundamental Advisers SP LLC-Belstar-Alta Series 1 and 2. It lists the Investment Manager for the borrower as Belstar Management Company LLC. Both Alta Fundamental Advisers and Belstar Management Company LLC have funds that previously registered in the Cayman Islands, according to their SEC filings.

The Fed is only selectively providing transaction level data for its myriad of bailout programs. As we previously noted, the Primary Dealer Credit Facility (PDCF) is one of the first bailout programs created by the Fed and yet it has never provided a drop of information as to who received the billions of dollars in loans under that program.
