Inflection Strategic Opportunities Fund Posts 10.34% Net Return For 2013, Outperforms Benchmark Indices

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- Inflection Management Inc. today announced that the Inflection Strategic Opportunities Fund ("Inflection" or the "Fund") delivered a net return of 10.34% in 2013, outperforming the Fund's benchmark indices and the TSX S&P Index.

The Fund's most relevant benchmark, the HFN Fund of Funds Multi Strategy Index, returned 9.11% for the year, and the Scotiabank Canadian Hedge Fund Index (Asset Weighted) was up 1.40% for the year, compared with Inflection's gains.

Since inception (October 2010), Inflection has produced a net return of 28.66%, outperforming the S&P/TSX Composite by 18.44%, the HFN Fund of Funds Multi-Strategy Index by 17.06%, and the Scotiabank Canadian Hedge Fund Index (Asset Weighted) by 28.12%.

"December provided a strong finish to another successful year for the Inflection Strategic Opportunities Fund," said Ari Shiff, Founder and Head of Fund Research. "Our Fund's performance demonstrates that healthy returns may result from taking on moderate risk and patiently seeking sources of overlooked value that are largely uncorrelated with the Canadian and US equities found in many investors' portfolios."

Equity long/short strategies and distressed and corporate debt strategies employed by Inflection were the main drivers of returns for 2013, with quantitative behavioral traders providing significant support. Looking forward, Inflection has increased convertible arbitrage and global macro allocations to continue to diversify and hedge against bouts of volatility.

Mr. Shiff added, "With so many Canadian investors exhausted by the volatility of their equity portfolios over the last five years, we have welcomed the strong interest we've had from investors looking to diversify and potentially improve their returns with alternative investments."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.'
