New alternatives manager eliminates performance fees for founding investors

    OAKVILLE, ON, May 27 /CNW/ - Acorn Global Investments is eliminating
performance fees for the initial founding investors in the Acorn Diversified
    "We are providing a limited opportunity to obtain a truly alternative
investment with traditional fees," says Jason Russell, President and Chief
Investment Officer of Acorn Global Investments. "Our transparency, liquidity,
highly disciplined approach and most importantly, our results are the primary
reasons people are investing. However, we see incredible opportunity ahead and
want to scale our business quickly. We found that eliminating performance fees
was the most effective way of providing a tangible incentive to those who
invest before July 1st," says Russell.
    While the alternative investment industry has been reeling from market
volatility, credit issues, scandal and an exodus of investors as well as
managers, Russell sees opportunity: "Investors are rightfully frustrated with
the results they have experienced as well as the lack of transparency and
liquidity they have been provided. This combined with the fact that currency,
agricultural and bond markets among others seems poised to experience large
moves is creating the opportunity of a lifetime for managers who produce
results and provide investors the risk control, liquidity and transparency
they demand."

    Acorn Global Investments is an alternative investment manager that is
committed to being an essential holding in the portfolios of high-net-worth
clients and institutions by delivering strong returns and diversification
benefits with its proven alternative approach.
    Acorn applies highly disciplined, adaptable and proven strategies to a
liquid portfolio of extensively diversified exchange traded futures and funds.
The combination of this adaptive approach and significant diversification
provides clients with an alternative investment to diversify their holdings in
equities, bonds or real estate.
