AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Class Fund
- Seeking long-term capital growth;
- not concerned with short term price fluctuations; and
- willing to accept medium risk
The AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Fund is a non-traditional investment vehicle that seeks to generate long term captal growth in excess of the major North American equity indexes. The Fund invests in companies that possess strong earnings momentum, earnings revision and relative price strength.
The Fund is tactical in nature and may at times be materially over or underweight certain sectors of the market. The Fund utilizes a technical sell discipline to manage downside risk and may completely exit the equities in favor of investment in less correlated asset classes such as cash, bonds, or precious metals.
- The Fund provides exposure to companies with superior earnings performance in strongly trending sectors of the market.
- The Fund employs a hardwired sell discipline and has the flexibility to completely exit the equity market during extended periods of stress.
- The Fund’s investment process is responsive to quickly changing market conditions. We do not use leverage, short securities, or invest in illiquid securities.
AVENTINE MANAGEMENT GROUP

The investment approach we employ is active, concentrated and very mindful of downside risk. Our objective is to deliver consistently positive returns with relatively low volatility.
Focus on market leading sectors
- The security selection process requires that new positions taken in the Fund come from top
performing sectors of the market.
Strict sell discipline
- The sell discipline is hard wired, emotionless and based on a combination of technical factors. We tend to average up our positions and not average down.
Reduced downside exposure
- Option overlays are used to reduce crash risk.
WHAT DOES THE FUND INVEST IN?
The objective of the Fund is to provide long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity (and equity equivalent) securities of individual companies, as well as exchange trade funds (“ETFs”), listed on securities exchanges in North America. In addition the Fund may, on occasion, partially or completely exit individual equities, and the stock market in general, in favour of cash and/or short-term money market securities. When fully invested in individual company equities, the portfolio advisor expects to generally hold securities of between 15 and 30 issuers. The tactical and technical nature of some of the strategies implemented by the portfolio advisor may result in the Fund undergoing relatively quick shifts in industry and sector allocations, as well as overall asset allocation into and out of equities.
