About TGP Funding

TGP Funding, through the parent company and wholly owned subsidiaries, is a group of event driven investment partnerships.  Through proprietary research and a strict investment discipline , we strive to create alpha for our partners in all market conditions. We consider ourselves to be absolute-return investors and do not compare our results to long-only indices.  Our investment ideology is rooted to the Buffett-Graham model of value investing.

TGP Funding believes that capital markets are largely inefficient within short-term market cycles.  Our job is simple:  identify market inefficiencies, select specific assets with margins of safety, and allocate capital accordingly to maximize returns for our partners.

We have created several business models designed to serve the needs and meet the goals of our partners.  Our commitment to excellence  and integrity for our partners is unwavering.  In nearly all of our business platforms, TGP Funding invests proprietary money alongside our partners.
