What differentiates StoneCastle Financial Corp. from peer competitors?

StoneCastle Financial Corp. is a unique investment vehicle.  We have no direct competitors.  We are the only publicly traded closed end investment management company dedicated to investing in community banks.  We are typically compared to BDC’s and other investment income vehicles, however, we believe the risk and credit profile of StoneCastle Financial Corp. is far more competitive than what investors can obtain in other investment income vehicles in the public market today.

Another overlooked differentiator from other investment income vehicles is that StoneCastle Financial Corp. provides a greater amount of depth and transparency into our financial results on a quarterly basis.  The Company hosts a quarterly investor conference call and takes time to discuss the results with investors and the analysts that cover StoneCastle Financial Corp.
