The main features of the mutual fund are as follows:

  • Flexible fixed income strategy
  • Use of leverage via derivatives
  • Borrow cash, if required
  • Sell short, if required
  • Use of hybrid securities including preferred shares, convertible bonds, structured notes
  • Employ trading strategies such as interest carry, active trading, yield curve, sector positioning
  • Risk management through the use of various hedging tools

“We are thrilled to be launching a differentiated fixed income alternative that employs more trading strategies and has increased flexibility in asset selection, within the parameters of the liquid alternative class,” says James Fox, CO-CEO and Managing Partner, Ninepoint Partners.

A unique bond fund

“The goal for our Fund is to be a fixed income alternative that fully utilizes all the strategies and assets available to us. This isn’t a fund that’s just using leverage on investment-grade credit to generate yield,” added Mark Wisniewski, Partner and Senior Portfolio Manager, Ninepoint Partners. “Liquid alternatives will be a game-changer for fixed income. Investors will have access to a unique bond fund that can potentially deliver higher returns with much less correlation to the bond market, resulting in less volatility.”

The fund will open for purchases on May 10, 2021.
