San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
RJL Capital Management, LLC, the San Diego-based investment adviser, announced the quarterly dividend of its interval fund¹, The Multi-Strategy Growth & Income Fund (the "Fund") (NASDAQ: MSFDX). The Fund’s board of directors declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.1736 per share that was paid ex-dividend² on March 27, 2013, to shareholders of record as of the close of trading on March 26, 2013. This marks the Fund’s fourth declared dividend and third consecutive increase since its inception.
The Multi-Strategy Growth & Income Fund’s portfolio manager, Ray Lucia Jr., stated, “There is a clear trend and appetite by investors for non-traditional investment opportunities driven by fear of inflation, market volatility, and an increasing need for income-focused solutions. The Fund is well positioned to address these issues by offering investors a diversified core allocation of real estate investment trusts, alternative investment funds, and equity income-focused investments.”
About the Multi-Strategy Growth & Income Fund
The Multi-Strategy Growth & Income Fund is registered as a continuously-offered closed-end interval fund which offers quarterly redemptions of up to 5% of shares outstanding. It allows investors diversification in several potential income-producing alternative strategies at a low minimum investment while providing limited liquidity.
The Fund seeks a multi-strategy approach to investing by diversifying assets across various alternative investments, including real estate investment trusts (REITs), equity income investments, business development companies (BDCs), and structured notes, with the overall goal of providing a consistent quarterly distribution. However, there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its objectives, generate profits, or avoid losses.
The Fund gives investors access to alternative income strategies that may provide greater yields and growth opportunities than traditional investment strategies. The primary objective of the Fund is current income generation. The secondary objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term growth.
The Fund intends to make a dividend distribution to its shareholders each quarter of the net investment income of the Fund after payment of the Fund’s operating expenses.

The Fund’s distribution rate may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in realized and projected market returns, Fund performance, and other factors. There can be no assurance that an unanticipated change in market conditions or other unforeseen factors will not result in a change in the Fund’s distribution rate at a future time.
Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund’s quarterly repurchase offers of up to 5% of the shares outstanding at net asset value. Volatility is a statistical measure of the dispersion of returns for a given security or market index. Commonly, the higher the volatility, the riskier the security. Volatility is unpredictable, and as a result the investments listed above are subject to market fluctuations and risks.
Closed-end funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. Alternative investment funds, ETFs, mutual funds, and closed-end funds are subject to management and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. Issuers of debt securities may not make scheduled interest and principal payments, resulting in losses to the Fund. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed-income securities. Lower-quality debt securities, known as “high-yield” or “junk” bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality, including increased default risk and non-diversification risk as the funds are more vulnerable to events affecting a single issuer. The use of leverage, such as borrowing money to purchase securities, will cause the Fund to incur additional expenses and will magnify the Fund’s gains or losses. There currently is no secondary market for the Fund’s shares, and the Fund expects that no secondary market will develop. Very limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund’s quarterly repurchase offers. Investments in lesser-known, small- and medium-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable than those in larger, more established organizations. The Fund will not invest in real estate directly, but, because the Fund will concentrate its investments in securities of REITs, its portfolio will be significantly impacted by the performance of the real estate market. The sale of securities to fund repurchases could reduce the market price of those securities, which in turn would reduce the Fund’s NAV. The value of a structured note will be influenced by time to maturity; type of note; market volatility; changes in the issuer’s credit quality rating; and economic, legal, political, or geographic events that affect the reference index.
