Canadian hedge fund offers investors more transparency

OAKVILLE, ON, Sept. 23 /CNW/ - Acorn Global Investments is answering investor feedback about the hedge fund industry by providing the transparency they have been asking for.

Investors in the Acorn Diversified Trust now have an option to receive a transparency report in the middle of each month in addition to the monthly reporting already in place. The report provides a detailed graphic view of the profit and loss as well as risk exposure right down to the instrument level for all open positions in the fund.

"Relationships thrive with open and clear communication," says Jason Russell, President and Chief Investment Officer of Acorn. "Our approach seems to be attracting intelligent investors who understand that during every month, sticking to our process that produces performance over time is more important than the monthly performance itself. We support that belief by communicating with our investors and providing them with innovative tools to closely monitor our effectiveness at adhering to our process," added Russell.

The report further discloses whether the management team at Acorn has subscribed or redeemed any fund units in the last 90 days to help investors know what management is doing with their own investments in the fund.

Investor response has been very positive: "It is a powerful testament to the discipline and rigor of your investment strategy that you can be so forthcoming about your process and portfolio exposures," said Adam Butler, CFA, Investment Advisor and Associate Portfolio Manager at GMP Private Client.

Acorn Global Investments is an alternative investment manager that applies highly disciplined, adaptable and proven strategies to a liquid portfolio of extensively diversified exchange traded futures and funds.
