BRI also specializes in research focused on quantifying, analyzing and demystifying the risk and alpha in alternative strategies.  BRI strives to be intellectually honest, transparent and focused on quality. BRI is committed to acting with equanimity and engaging in collaborative, open-minded relationships with our clients and our partners to create true value for all.

All investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal. The Fund’s achievement of its objectives is not guaranteed. The Fund’s strategies for managing volatility entail their own unique risks and it may not be suitable for some investors due to their financial circumstances and risk tolerance. Futures can be volatile and may cause the Fund’s performance to be volatile. A fluctuation in an individual holding could have a relatively large impact because the Fund is not diversified. The Fund is not actively managed and so will not otherwise take defensive positions in declining markets unless such positions are reflected in the Fund’s benchmark index.
