A new investor share class for the Hundredfold Select
Alternative Fund was rolled out by the investment adviser.
According to Mary Collins, managing member of Hundredfold
Advisors, the share class gives more investors the opportunity to take
advantage of the Select Alternative Fund’s active management strategy, which
anticipates and responds to emerging trends in fixed-income and equity
securities. “Financial advisers are increasingly allocating to liquid
alternative mutual funds that offer the benefits of hedge funds in an
accessible format,” Collins said. “The Select Alternative Fund is well
positioned to meet that demand.”
Hundredfold Advisors, which has acted as sub-adviser to the Hundredfold Select Funds since their
inception in 2004, employs a range of alternative, technical and defensive
investment strategies in the management of their family of funds. The Select
Alternative Fund seeks a moderate rate of total return (income plus capital
appreciation) annually in part by identifying, quantifying and controlling
elements of risk as an integral part of the investment strategy.
An active approach to investing allows for greater levels of
flexibility in difficult markets than traditional buy-and-hold strategies, said
Ralph Doudera, portfolio manager at Hundredfold Advisors. “Our approach gives
us the ability to respond to emerging trends and better control for risk, while
providing low correlation to the overall markets and daily liquidity,” he said.
