Press Release: Infinity Q Wins 2018 Lipper Award

INFINITY Q WINS THE 2018 LIPPER AWARD FOR ITS DIVERSIFIED ALPHA FUND

6 minute read

NEW YORK, NY (April 13, 2018) - 
Infinity Q Diversified Alpha received the 2018 award for best multi-strategy alternative fund at the Lipper Awards. The award is based on the three year risk-adjusted performance. The Fund was ranked 1 out of 43 funds in the category.
 
For Average Annual Total Returns through March 31, 2018, Infinity Q Diversified Alpha has gained 7.55% YTD and 10.58% over the last year. The fund performed well during the first quarter’s spike in volatility that sent the VIX Index to 37 in February from a low of 9 in January. The bout of risk aversion presented a challenging environment for many alternative strategies. “The previous regime of persistently low volatility ended with a bang,” said James Velissaris, Chief Investment Officer of Infinity Q. “Investors have been reluctant to adapt to this new environment, and we expect this backward looking investment approach will create a significant amount of investment opportunities for our fund.

The performance presented is net of management fees and expenses and reflects the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Performance data also reflects fee waivers and in the absence of these waivers performance would be reduced. Performance data does not reflect the 1.00% redemption fee imposed on shares held 60 days or less which would also reduce performance.
 
As of the date of the Fund’s current prospectus, the gross expense ratios for the Institutional Class and Investor Class are 2.49% and 2.85%, respectively. The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive fees until at least December 31, 2018. See the Prospectus for additional details.


Disclosures:
Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Absolute return strategies are not designed to outperform stocks and bonds during strong market rallies. Derivatives, such as Credit Default Swaps (CDS) and Forwards and Futures, involve special risks including correlation, counterparty, liquidity, operational, accounting and tax risks. These risks, in certain cases, may be greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Investing in commodities may subject the Fund to greater risks and volatility as commodity prices may be influenced by a variety of factors including unfavorable weather, environmental factors, and changes in government regulations. The Fund invests in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longerterm debt securities. Investment by the Fund in lowerrated and nonrated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higherrated securities. The fund may make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested. The fund may use leverage which may exaggerate the effect of any increase or decrease in the value of portfolio securities or the Net Asset Value of the fund, and money borrowed will be subject to interest costs.
 
The fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other important information about the investment company, and it may be obtained by calling 1.844.IQFUND1 (473.8631), or visiting www.infinityqfunds.com.
