New York (HedgeCo.Net) -US hedge fund family FISCO Funds Management LLC., and financial services firm OP 8 Analytics LLC., have announced a joint venture to launch a new investment management company, CARF Management LLC.
The new firm will serve as investment advisor to the River Rock IV Fund expected to launch in Q4. The new mutual fund, designed to be actively managed with an emphasis on safety and preservation of wealth, will provide investors the opportunity to maintain a permanent allocation to an alternative investment strategy
“Static allocations to portfolio classes and simple buy-and-hold strategies are no longer viable in today’s volatile environments,” Kevin Ellis, a principal at FISCO Funds Management said. “Our mission is to actively manage the River Rock IV portfolio in an attempt to enhance returns while seeking to maintain a core of safety and stability that may protect and grow wealth.”
CARF’s principals bring more than 100 years of investment management experience running hedge funds and providing separate account management services to high net-worth clients.
CARF Management LLC (CARF) is co-owned by FISCO Funds Management and OP 8 Analytics, LLC. CARF was developed by industry veterans to deliver a product that incorporates a number of diverse global, low-correlated asset classes to produce better returns during any economic cycle including periods of prosperity, inflation, deflation and recessions. CARF uses decades of global investment experience and leading-edge dashboard risk analysis to help Registered Investment Advisors manage through what they believe is the “new normal” in the marketplace.
