AlphaCentric Launches AlphaCentric Small Cap Opportunities Fund
Huntington, NY, July 10, 2018 – 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 and seeks 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.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. 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. To the extent the Fund invests in the stocks of smaller-sized companies, the Fund may be subject to additional risks, including the risk that earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Smaller-sized companies may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have lower trading volume than larger companies. The Fund is a new Fund and has a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate. The Fund invests in the securities of foreign companies which are generally not subject to the same regulatory requirements and have different accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards from those applicable to U.S. companies. Overall stock market risks may also affect the value of the Fund. Factors such as domestic economic growth and market conditions, interest rate levels and political events affect the securities markets. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
