AlphaCentric has surpassed one billion dollars (U.S.) in assets under management. The growing mutual fund company, which launched in 2014, offers alpha-driven and hedge-fund like strategies in a mutual fund format.

Our growth over the last three years to reach one billion dollars in assets is a testament to both the success of our funds, as well as the critical role these strategies play in investors’ portfolios.

AlphaCentric, the mutual fund company that strives to be the alpha-driven future of investing, has surpassed one billion dollars (U.S.) in assets under management. The growing mutual fund company, which launched in 2014, offers alpha-driven and hedge-fund like strategies in a mutual fund format.

AlphaCentric offers five mutual funds that were launched based on proven investment strategies, including one hedge fund that was converted to a mutual fund. The current portfolio of fund offerings includes:

  • AlphaCentric Income Opportunities Fund (IOFIX), which invests in non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and a variety of other asset-backed fixed income securities (ABS). IOFIX has generated a 12.57% return in the one-year period ending June 30, 2017.
  • AlphaCentric Hedged Market Opportunity Fund (HMXIX), which makes long and short investments in call and put options on instruments that reflect the S&P 500 and its volatility. HMXIX has generated an annualized 9.32% return over the 5-year period ending June 30, 2017 with low volatility relative to the S&P 500.
  • AlphaCentric Global Innovations Fund (GNXIX), which invests in both U.S. and foreign stock of companies involved in breakthrough technologies, with a specific focus on robotics and automation. It is the only mutual fund dedicated to this sector of technology.
  • AlphaCentric Asset Rotation Fund (ROTIX), which invests in a portfolio of global asset class ETFs and allocates investments to those experiencing the most strength each month.
  • AlphaCentric Bond Rotation Fund (BDRIX), which invests in global bond asset class ETFs, including those focused on U.S. corporate bonds, foreign bonds, tax-free/municipal bonds, mortgage-backed securities and U.S. Treasury securities.

“We launched AlphaCentric to provide all investors access to actively-managed, uniquely focused investment strategies,” said Jerry Szilagyi, CEO and co-founder of AlphaCentric. “Our growth over the last three years to reach one billion dollars in assets is a testament to both the success of our funds, as well as the critical role these strategies play in investors’ portfolios.

Risk Considerations for IOFIX

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund is non-diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds; the Fund is subject to concentration risk. Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a security will not be able to make principal and interest payments when due. The use of derivatives and futures involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risk associated with investing directly in securities. Fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Lower-quality bonds, known as "high yield" or "junk" bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. There are risks associated with the sale and purchase of call and put options. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

Risk Considerations for HMXIX

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The Fund will invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turn-over may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts and options strategies. Investing in commodities markets may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Currency trading risks include market risk, credit risk and country risk. Foreign investing involves risks not typically associated with U.S. investments. Changes in interest rates and the liquidity of certain investments could affect the Fund’s overall performance. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. Other risks include U.S. Government securities risks and investments in fixed income securities. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities or derivatives owned by the Fund. Furthermore, the use of leveraging can magnify the potential for gain or loss and amplify the effects of market volatility on the Fund’s share price. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

Risk Considerations for GNXIX

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The Fund may invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turn-over may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts and options strategies. To the extent the Fund invests in the stocks of smaller-sized companies, the Fund may be subject to additional risks, including the risk that earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Smaller-sized companies may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have lower trading volume than larger companies. These factors may affect the value of your investment. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment. Investments in international markets present special risks including currency fluctuation, the potential for diplomatic and political instability, regulatory and liquidity risks, foreign taxations and differences in auditing and other financial standards. Risks of foreign investing are generally intensified for investment in emerging markets. Emerging market securities tend to be more volatile and less liquid than securities traded in developed countries.

Risk Considerations for ROTIX

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund is non-diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. Because the Fund may invest in other investment companies such as ETFs, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to the performance of the acquired funds. Investing in acquired funds involves certain additional expenses and certain tax results that would not arise if you invested directly in the securities of the acquired funds. Foreign companies are generally not subject to the same regulatory requirements of U.S. companies thereby resulting in less publicly available information about these companies. Foreign accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards generally differ from those applicable to U.S. companies. Investing in emerging markets involves additional risks, including exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature, and to political systems that can be expected to have less stability than those of developed countries. When the Fund invests in fixed income securities (U.S. Treasuries), the value of your investment in the Fund will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

Risk Considerations for BDRIX

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio.

The value of your investment in the Fund will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. When the Fund invests in mortgage-backed securities, the Fund is subject to the risk that, if the underlying borrowers fail to pay interest or repay principal, the assets backing these securities may not be sufficient to support payments on the securities. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
