AlphaCentric Income Opportunities Fund (IOFAX) Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary
Huntington, NY, June 8, 2017 – AlphaCentric, the mutual fund firm that strives to be the alpha- driven future of investing, announced today that the AlphaCentric Income Opportunities Fund (IOFAX) recently celebrated its two-year anniversary with an impressive annualized return of 13.04% since inception and outperforming the Bloomberg Barclays Agg. Bond TR Index by 10.75%.
The Fund seeks to generate current yield and total return via investments in structured products which include non-agency residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) and a variety of asset-backed fixed income securities (ABS).
“The trade is based on homeowners who have survived the greatest housing crisis – let’s hope – of our lifetimes, and since then have continued to make regular payments while their home values have recovered and their mortgage balances have decreased,” Brian Loo, Portfolio Manager and CIO of Garrison Point Capital commented. “This pool of borrowers is that much more incentivized and compelled to protect the home equity they have built over the last decade by servicing their mortgage. We feel that this potential key building block for the Fund in seeking to meet its investment objective.”
“We are elated by the strong performance of the AlphaCentric Income Opportunities Fund,” commented Jerry Szilagyi, CEO of AlphaCentric. “The investment strategy has not only performed well in its first two years, but in a market environment where yield has been near impossible to capture. We are proud to offer investors the opportunity to capitalize on this strategy.”
“We have been thrilled with the partnership formed with AlphaCentric, and look forward to continued added- value for investors,” said Garrett Smith, CEO of Garrison Point Capital.
IOFAX is sub-advised by Garrison Point Capital, LLC, and the portfolio is managed by an investment team with over 70 years of combined industry experience. For more information on the fund, please visit: http://alphacentricfunds.com/products.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund is non-diversified and may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issue and may own fewer securities than other mutual funds; the Fund is subject to concentration risk. Credit risk is the risk that the issuer of a security will not be able to make principal and interest payments when due. The use of derivatives and futures involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risk associated with investing directly in securities. Fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Lower-quality bonds, known as “high yield” or “junk” bonds, present greater risk than bonds of higher quality. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. There are risks associated with the sale and purchase of call and put options. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
