Focused Alpha Fund

The NewGen Focused Alpha Fund is an opportunistic long biased equity strategy that merges trading and fundamental analysis with a targeted annualized return of 10-15%. The strategy seeks to identify market dislocations and alpha opportunities in the extremely inefficient Canadian equity market through an active management strategy which positions around definable catalysts / events.

The fund targets absolute returns from 25 core long and short positions and is defensively positioned to reduce correlation to equity markets. The fund maintains a high level of portfolio liquidity to manage downside volatility and has the ability to de-risk quickly in periods of market disruption to protect capital. In addition, the fund’s alpha short positions provide further downside protection and opportunity for return generation.
