Who We Are

At AlphaCore, we build unique portfolios utilizing an open architecture methodology for advisors and institutional clients.

AlphaCore was built to solve a need. We have witnessed the proliferation of liquid alternatives and the challenges associated with building portfolios that include them. Our founder spent the past two decades democratizing access to best-of-breed alternative strategies.

We embrace an investment philosophy that is sensitive to today’s changing investment landscape, prudently diversifying using alternative investments. With decades of experience, we have seen what works and what doesn’t. Our goal is to help cut through the clutter and frustration that comes with selecting alternative investments through a balanced, well-managed fund.

Our proprietary research begins with a re-categorization of the liquid alternatives universe. Risk factors are decomposed using proprietary statistical measures and is combined with our qualitative due diligence to create unique peer groups. Our portfolios have a combination of convergent and divergent strategies, depending on the appropriate mandate.

Important Risk Information

This material represents the current views and opinions of AlphaCore Capital, and there is no guarantee that any forecasts made will come to pass. Due to various risks and uncertainties, actual events, results or performance may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated in any forward-looking statements. The opinions are based on market conditions as of the date of publication, and are subject to change. No obligation is undertaken to update any information, data or material contained herein.

The fund has a limited history of operations. Although the Fund’s investment strategy is to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns independent of overall market direction, there is no guarantee that the Fund ‘s performance will be independent of overall market direction in all market conditions. A significant part of the Fund’s investment operations may involve spread positions between two or more financial instrument positions. To the extent the price relationships between such positions remain constant, no gain or loss on the positions will occur. The Fund’s use of derivatives involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in securities and other traditional investments. The value of a derivative may be highly volatile and may fluctuate substantially during a short period of time. The Fund may depend on one or more managers to develop and implement appropriate systems for the Fund’s activities. The Fund may rely extensively on models and/or computer programs and systems to trade, clear and settle transactions, to evaluate certain securities based on real-time trading information, to monitor its portfolios and net capital, and to generate risk management and other reports that are critical to the oversight of the Fund’s activities. Any such defect or failure could have a material adverse effect on the Fund. The Fund’s investment program may involve the purchase and sale of relatively volatile financial instruments such as derivatives, which are frequently valued based on implied volatilities of such derivatives compared to the historical volatility of underlying financial instruments. Fluctuations or prolonged changes in the volatility of such instruments, therefore, can adversely affect the value of investments held by the Fund.
