In response to the challenges faced by many community bankers today, TransWestern Capital Advisors has created a solution to address the needs and risks presented by today’s low interest rate environment.   Overwhelmingly, community bankers today are faced with the challenge of finding appropriate investments for their excess liquidity, yet have very reasonable concerns about the destructive effects that rising rates can have on longer investment products, particularly those filled with call options, and pre-payment and extension risk.  TransWestern Capital Advisors has structured every feature of the TransWestern fund to specifically address those needs.
