NEW YORK, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Madeira Global, LLC, ("MG") an investment and advisory firm focused on impact investing for qualified investors and institutions, has launched a new loan product in partnership with Brevet Capital Management, LLC ("Brevet"). MG co-founders, Christina M. Alfonso and Alexandra Peterson Cart, announced the firm's new product at the 2014 Milken Global Conference.
The new product consists of short-duration, collateralized loans to middle-market companies focused on six key social and environment impact areas: education, employment, health services, infrastructure development, renewable energy and sustainable agriculture.
