AlphaCentric Surpasses $2.5 Billion in Assets Under Management

Huntington, NY, October 23, 2018 – AlphaCentric, the mutual fund company that strives to be the alpha-driven future of investing, has surpassed $2.5 billion in assets under management (AUM). This represents a 150% increase in assets in 13 months.

“AlphaCentric’s growth over the last four years is a testament to the strategies that we offer investors,” said Mark Kamies, managing member and co-founder of AlphaCentric. “We are committed to offering products that provide diversification and utilize unique investment strategies, while attempting to mitigate risk. As we continue to grow, we will remain steadfast in our focus on distinct fund offerings and strong investment management teams.”

AlphaCentric, which launched in 2014, currently offers six unique alpha-driven strategies in mutual fund format:

  • AlphaCentric Income Opportunities Fund (IOFIX) seeks to achieve current income via investments in structured products which include non-agency residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) and a variety of asset-backed fixed income securities (ABS). These ABS investments encompass aircraft, shipping and transportation assets, as well as other sectors.
  • AlphaCentric Asset Rotation Fund (ROTIX) invests in a portfolio of global asset class ETFs that are ranked each month, that seeks to achieve an objective of long term capital appreciation. The portfolio’s ETF holdings include those that invest in U.S. equities of any market capitalization, foreign (including emerging markets) equities of any market capitalization, U.S. Treasury securities or cash.
  • AlphaCentric Bond Rotation Fund (BDRIX) seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation and total returns by investing in a portfolio of global bond asset class ETFs, including those that invest in U.S. corporate bonds, foreign bonds, U.S. tax free/municipal bonds, mortgage-backed securities and U.S. Treasury securities. ETFs are ranked each month according to a relative strength score and the Portfolio will generally include between two and four bond ETFs, depending on the results of each proprietary selection formula.
  • AlphaCentric Hedged Market Opportunity Fund (HMXIX) provides an options-rooted strategy, making long and short investments in call and put options on instruments that reflect the S&P 500 and its volatility. Using an algorithm developed via artificial intelligence, the Fund employs a systematic, rules-based options strategy that includes premium collection, volatility trading and trend following. The Fund’s investment objective is long-term capital appreciation.
  • AlphaCentric Global Innovations Fund (GNXIX) invests in companies worldwide focused on innovation technologies, with robotics and automation comprising at least 75% of its portfolio to achieve its objective of long-term capital appreciation. The equity-based strategy is fundamentally based on the belief that growth in robotics for workplace automation has reached a tipping point towards wide‐scale adoption, and global spending on robotics is rapidly expanding.
  • AlphaCentric Small Cap Opportunities Fund (SMZIX) has an objective of long-term capital appreciation by focusing 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 that are near or below historical averages.

Important Risk Considerations

IOFIX: 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.

ROTIX: 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 performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short-term changes. Because the Fund may invest in other investment companies such as ETFs, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to the performance of the acquired funds. Investing in acquired funds involves certain additional expenses and certain tax results that would not arise if you invested directly in the securities of the acquired funds. Foreign companies are generally not subject to the same regulatory requirements of U.S. companies thereby resulting in less publicly available information about these companies. Foreign accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards generally differ from those applicable to U.S. companies. Investing in emerging markets involves additional risks, including exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature, and to political systems that can be expected to have less stability than those of developed countries. When the Fund invests in fixed income securities (U.S. Treasuries), the value of your investment in the Fund will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

BDRIX: 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 performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short-term changes. Because the Fund may invest in other investment companies such as ETFs, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to the performance of the acquired funds. Investing in acquired funds involves certain additional expenses and certain tax results that would not arise if you invested directly in the securities of the acquired funds. Foreign companies are generally not subject to the same regulatory requirements of U.S. companies thereby resulting in less publicly available information about these companies. Foreign accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards generally differ from those applicable to U.S. companies. Investing in emerging markets involves additional risks, including exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature, and to political systems that can be expected to have less stability than those of developed countries. The value of your investment in the Fund will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. When the Fund invests in mortgage-backed securities, the Fund is subject to the risk that, if the underlying borrowers fail to pay interest or repay principal, the assets backing these securities may not be sufficient to support payments on the securities. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

HMXIX: Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The Fund will invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turn-over may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts and options strategies. Investing in commodities markets may subject the Fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Currency trading risks include market risk, credit risk and country risk. Foreign investing involves risks not typically associated with U.S. investments. Changes in interest rates and the liquidity of certain investments could affect the Fund’s overall performance. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. Other risks include U.S. Government securities risks and investments in fixed income securities. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities or derivatives owned by the Fund. Furthermore, the use of leveraging can magnify the potential for gain or loss and amplify the effects of market volatility on the Fund’s share price. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment.

GNXIX: Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The Fund may invest a percentage of its assets in derivatives, such as futures and options contracts. The use of such derivatives and the resulting high portfolio turn-over may expose the Fund to additional risks that it would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities and commodities underlying those derivatives. The Fund may experience losses that exceed those experienced by funds that do not use futures contracts and options strategies. 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. These factors may affect the value of your investment. The Fund is non-diversified and as a result, changes in the value of a single security may have significant effect on the Fund’s value. The Fund is subject to regulatory change and tax risks; changes to current rules could increase costs associated with an investment in the Fund. These factors may affect the value of your investment. Investments in international markets present special risks including currency fluctuation, the potential for diplomatic and political instability, regulatory and liquidity risks, foreign taxations and differences in auditing and other financial standards. Risks of foreign investing are generally intensified for investment in emerging markets. Emerging market securities tend to be more volatile and less liquid than securities traded in developed countries.

SMZIX: 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.
