Pender Alternative Multi-Strategy Income Fund

The Pender Alternative Multi-Strategy Income Fund* aims to generate returns through current income and capital appreciation, while being sufficiently diversified to mitigate volatility and preserve capital. 

Undertaking research into fundamentals, the Manager will identify what we believe are attractive risk adjusted return opportunities to build a diversified portfolio. The Manager believes that private and public securities are priced inefficiently and, as a result, the price of any given security only occasionally coincides with its intrinsic value and we aim to generate returns by identifying and exploiting these inaccuracies.

The Fund will invest primarily in North American securities and may also invest in foreign securities.

As at Sept. 1, 2022 (the “Conversion Date”), the Fund amended its investment objectives and strategies and converted from a conventional mutual fund to an alternative mutual fund. For further information, please see the news release under the Documents tab and the Simplified Prospectus dated August 29, 2022, available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or under the Legal & Financial tab.

  • Performance information for this Fund will be added at the one year anniversary of the Fund’s Conversion Date.

    As of the Conversion Date, as an alternative mutual fund, the Fund is permitted to invest in asset classes or use investment strategies that are not permitted for conventional mutual funds. Prior to the Conversion Date, the Fund was a Canadian and US Equity Fund with the primary objective to achieve capital growth over the long-term, while being sufficiently diversified to mitigate volatility. After the Conversion Date, the Fund will be an Alternative Multi-Strategy Income Fund with the primary objective to preserve capital and to generate returns through current income and capital appreciation, while being sufficiently diversified to mitigate volatility. Due to these significant material changes, performance of the Fund prior to the Conversion Date which relates to the Fund’s previous investment objectives and strategies are expected to differ substantially from future performance of the Fund after the Conversion Date under its new investment objectives and strategies.
