ROUNDTABLE LOW VOLATILITY EQUITY FUND
The primary investment objective of this Fund is to provide long-term growth through capital appreciation and income. Investments are made in North American securities with a focus on Canadian equities. This Fund employs an active covered call overlay strategy in an effort to augment income and lower volatility. This Fund may invest in fixed income securities, preferred shares, options, forwards and derivatives from time to time.
ROUNDTABLE GROWTH FUND
The primary investment objective of this Fund is to maximize long-term capital appreciation. This Fund capitalizes on North American investment opportunities, focusing on Canadian equities, across the full spectrum of market capitalizations and capital structures. This Fund utilizes a “bottom-up” approach, aiming to take positions in companies that are typically not well followed or understood by the investment community. This Fund may invest in fixed income securities, preferred shares, options, forwards and derivatives from time to time.
ROUNDTABLE GLOBAL FOCUS FUND
The primary investment objective of this Fund is to provide long-term capital appreciation. This Fund will invest in both developed and developing markets and hold concentrated positions from among its top investment ideas. This Fund’s global equity investment strategy is based on identifying, researching, and investing in undervalued and under-researched ideas. This Fund’s portfolio management process emphasizes the longer-term, employs a risk management strategy to evaluate company, industry and geographic risks, and accentuates a low turnover approach.
ROUNDTABLE ABSOLUTE ALPHA FUND
The primary investment objective of this Fund is to achieve long-term capital appreciation. The Absolute Alpha Fund is a non-equity portfolio that utilizes an algorithmic trading (systematic) strategy, trading solely in major currency pairs through spot and forward trading, coupled with parallel active investments in both short and long-term, plain vanilla, over-the-counter options to achieve its investment objective. The Fund aims to have little correlation to capital markets with an absolute return investment mandate and a disciplined approach to risk. The Fund utilizes a top-down approach to enter and exit positions by taking positions relating to economic data and announcements. These positions are often hedged. The strategy consists of both long term positions, where Avant-Garde believes the market to be incorrectly priced and a return to normalized levels is expected, and short term positions, where Avant-Garde will take advantage of over-extended markets, announcements and large-scale economic news events.
