Bear Stearns will provide up to $3.2 billion to finance its struggling hedge fund, according to Reuters. Bear said it provided secured financing to the High Grade Structured Credit Strategies Fund, which, according to a source familiar with the situation, was down about 5% through April. The financing will eliminate exposure that Citigroup and Barclays had in the fund, sources said. A restructuring plan is still being worked on with creditors for the second fund, sources said. The High Grade Structured Credit Strategies Enhanced Leverage Fund was down 23% for the year by the end of April.
