AlphaCentric launches AlphaCentric Energy Income Fund

Wednesday, February 12, 2020
Opalesque Industry Update - AlphaCentric has launched the AlphaCentric Energy Income Fund (AEIIX). The Fund's investment strategy is unique among mutual funds, focusing on the infrastructure necessary to help drive the energy transition, including midstream and renewable infrastructure companies. It is sub-advised by Kayne Anderson Fund Advisors, a subsidiary of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, a leading alternative investment management firm with approximately $31 billion USD in assets under management across energy, infrastructure, real estate, credit and growth equity.

Positions taken by AEIIX are based on the belief that 2020 marks the early stages of a massive transformation in global energy, as renewables take on an increasing role to meet rapidly growing energy demands. Investments focus on the infrastructure necessary to help drive this energy transition. Taking positions in equities and debt of midstream and renewable infrastructure companies, the Fund's objective focuses on achieving total return with an emphasis on current income.

"Electricity demand is projected to double in the next 30 years, fueling a massive migration to a combination of cleaner fossil fuels and renewable energy sources." said Mark Kamies, co-founder of AlphaCentric Funds. "The addition of the AlphaCentric Energy Income Fund, backed by the expertise of Kayne Anderson, provides investors with smart access to this growth area while also generating strong yield for their portfolios."

AEIIX is unique in its focus on both midstream and renewable investments and provides a single fund that invests across the capital structure and infrastructure landscape. With a deep knowledge of the energy sector, the Kayne Anderson team follows the trends behind the rapidly increasing demand for energy and targets attractive monthly income through exposure to infrastructure equity and credit, in both traditional and renewable energy. This approach provides access to the megatrend of renewable energy infrastructure spending growth, with lower correlations to broader markets and lower volatility potential via a mix of infrastructure investments.

AlphaCentric is mutual fund company that provides investors access to unique investment strategies with a nuanced approach to traditional and non-traditional asset classes.
