TFG Asset Management

Emily Cox, Business Development

Tetragon’s diversified alternative asset management platform

TFG Asset Management enables Tetragon to produce asset level returns on its investments in managed funds on the platform, and to enhance those returns through capital appreciation and investment income from its ownership stakes in the asset management businesses. The combination of relatively uncorrelated businesses across different asset classes and at different stages of development under TFG Asset Management is also intended to create a collectively more robust and diversified business and income stream.

    Restrictions on Ownership by U.S. Persons

    Tetragon’s shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933. Consequently, Tetragon shares may not be offered, sold or otherwise transferred within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, “U.S. persons” as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act absent registration or an exemption from registration under the Securities Act. No public offering of any Tetragon shares is being, or has been, made in the United States.

    In addition, Tetragon has not been and will not be registered under the United States Investment Company Act of 1940. Direct or indirect beneficial ownership of securities issued by Tetragon to any U.S. person who is not a “qualified purchaser” as defined in the Investment Company Act and applicable rules thereunder is prohibited. Under Tetragon’s Articles of Incorporation, the directors of Tetragon may in certain circumstances compel the transfer of any Tetragon shares owned directly or beneficially by any person who is not a “qualified purchaser”.

    Furthermore, Tetragon shares may not be held by any “benefit plan investor” that is subject to Title I of the United States Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.
