AmericaVest Lauches "10/10" Hedge Fund

AmericaVest Capital Management LLC has announced the launching of its new flagship hedge fund, the AmericaVest “10/10 Fund”. Drawing on over 70 years of collective experience in financial services, wealth management and asset backed investing.

The hedge fund offers investors the opportunity for a fixed priority annual return of 10%. The strategy is designed to target absolute returns and outperform traditional equity and bond markets, with low volatility. The hedge fund believes that diversification, low correlation and consistent capital appreciation can be achieved through active portfolio management and exposure to a combination of carefully selected pools of mortgage loans.

AmericaVest Capital Management doesn’t participate in any of the performance of the portfolio until after investors have received their priority return on a quarter over quarter basis. Once the specified fixed annualized priority return is achieved, investors then share in 10% of the hedge fund’s net profits, the proirity return has a high water mark.
