This Multi-strategy Alternative Investment has had an average gain of 29% since 1990 without a single loosing year or the use of borrowing to increase leverage.

The origin of the Triumph Investment Master Fund (TIMF) was a foreign trust account originally set up through Thomson McKinnon Inc. in March 1989.

TIMF is designed to pool the talents of floor-traders and “niche” traders that have honed their trading skills and developed their “edge” on the exchange floor or at “boutique” trading firms. The Fund is a logical combination of unique and diverse trading strategies, thoroughly analyzed for risk, diligently scrutinized and strictly controlled to provide significant opportunity for return under most market circumstances.

The foreign trust account was created in 1989. The trust investment program was successful and thus in 1994, it became the genesis of Triumph Investment Fund Ltd., a British Virgin Islands based “alternative-investment,” “strategic allocation” fund for the proprietary use of the principals who formed the fund. In 1999, it was offered to investors who met the proper financial qualifications under US rules. Specifically Qualified Eligible Participants (QEP's), Accredited Investors, or Qualified Purchasers.

The Fund was offered under a “Master-Feeder” structure formed in the British Virgin Islands as an International Business Company which is a limited risk trading entity. Investors were accepted through either of two “Feeder” funds; TIF Offshore Fund Ltd. (for non-US investors or for US tax-exempt investors) and TIF Onshore Fund LLC (for US or non-US investors.) All expenses are allocated at the Master Fund level and there is no duplication of fees or expenses between the Master and either Feeder.

Triumph presently operates 16 different strategies traded in separate individual subsidiary accounts or sub-funds. The individual strategy managers are often exchange members and whenever possible, pass through those benefits to the Fund. Other than investments with managers that no longer accept new investments, the Trust and the Master Fund are traded pari-passu.

As of January 1, 2004 only Master Class shares are offered. Master Shares are liquid monthly. All investments are made solely in exchange traded assets and no investments are permitted that cannot be marked-to-market each day.

2003 performance was 22.2%
