HUNTINGTON, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlphaCentric, the mutual fund company that strives to be the alpha-driven future of investing, today announced the launch of its newest fund, the AlphaCentric Small Cap Opportunities Fund (SMZIX).
SMZIX seeks long term capital appreciation and focuses specifically on the equities of small capitalization companies primarily based in the U.S. The management team uses proprietary, bottom-up research to identify companies that have underappreciated earnings potential and exhibit reasonable valuations. Designed to mitigate valuation risk, the Fund typically takes positions in companies with valuation multiples that are near or below historical averages.
“This newest addition to the AlphaCentric Funds family is one that aims to offer investors exposure to small cap companies without the typical volatility that comes with this sector,” said Jerry Szilagyi, CEO of AlphaCentric. “The team behind the AlphaCentric Small Cap Opportunities Fund utilizes fundamental research to mitigate valuation risk in an attempt to provide a more favorable risk/reward tradeoff.”
At any one time, SMZIX is invested in 50 to 90 stocks, with a typical holding period of less than 12 months. The AlphaCentric Small Cap Opportunities Fund, which is sub-advised by Pacific View Asset Management, trades under the tickers SMZIX, SMZAX and SMZCX.
