West Palm Beach (HedgeCo.net) – Hedge fund advisor and manager American Pegasus LDG, LCC., is seeing the 36th subsequent month of positive returns for the Pegasus Auto Loan Fund, which invests in US subprime auto loans.
The fund has returned an average of 1.55% per month with 100% positive months since inception in September of 2005.
Providing the opportunity to profit from stable high yields via sub-prime auto loans with collateral in the form of automobiles, the fund currently has $89 million under management and uses no leverage.
"In the $200 billion auto industry there is high demand for auto loan originations." The Pegasus preformance sheet shows, "In 2005, 4.7% of U.S. workers used public transportation and 90% workers own a car; 1/3 households own > 1 car; Average 1.9 cars/household"
That number rises and falls with energy fluctuations, according to the Energy Information Administration, "Transportation costs have increased due to many factors related to travel and prices paid for transportation fuel, while being somewhat offset by improved fuel economy."
