The Fund will leverage Quantius' technology and operations expertise, credit management depth and proprietary best-in-class analytics platform to identify and lend to outperforming companies
TORONTO, Feb. 10, 2017 /CNW/ - Quantius Inc. ("Quantius") is pleased to announce the launch of Quantius Innovation Income Fund LP (the "Fund"), an open-ended limited partnership formed under the laws of the province of Ontario. Quantius will provide investment advisory services to the Fund. The Fund seeks to generate superior risk-adjusted returns by investing in an actively managed portfolio of secured loans to outperforming, knowledge-based and intellectual property ("IP") rich small and medium-sized enterprises ("SMEs"). The other main advantages of the Fund are non-correlation with other asset classes, income distributions and portfolio diversification.
The Fund's lending strategy involves a fundamental analysis approach that identifies enterprises with underappreciated intellectual property and intangible assets that may be overlooked by the general financing community. Investments, while generally loans to Canadian SMEs, are anticipated to be well-diversified by industry, sector and size.
Units of the Fund will be offered on a continuous basis with a minimum initial subscription amount of $100,000 for subscribers who qualify as "accredited investors".
"We're excited to announce the launch of the Fund" said Hassan Khan, Quantius Founder and CEO. "We first went to market in 2016 to lend to knowledge-based, IP-rich Canadian businesses that were growing. There is tremendous untapped potential in this segment as many of these companies are global leaders in their respective niches. Unsurprisingly, we faced far more demand than we had capacity to handle across sectors from medical technology, aerospace, telecom to clean technology, which really speaks to the nascent potential of Canadian industry. This Fund will allow us to address that demand far better and at scale, while continuing to provide our investors the non-correlated and superior risk adjusted returns that we delivered in 2016."
Quantius is a commercial lender that attributes value to both tangible and intangible assets of innovative companies. The Quantius team combines technology and operations expertise with credit management and originations depth, and levers a proprietary best-in-class IP analytics platform to identify companies whose commercial outperformance is driven by superior IP.
