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.”
