Canadian family office SureFire starts new fund structure

Thursday, November 18, 2021
Opalesque Industry Update - SureFire Capital, a family office specializing in alternative investments, debuted its innovative structure for investors in SureFire Multi-Strat, LP, which achieved a +24% year-to-date 2021 return including +15.6% in October and +28.4% annualized.

The underlying quantitative investment strategy, focused on the Nasdaq-100 Index, is highly scalable. Qualified investors may select the traditional hedge fund structure or SureFire Capital's innovative new 'Buffered Note' as a 12, 24 or 36-month loan, providing fixed quarterly interest disbursements. The note's principal risk decreases over time, offset by SureFire's Equity Buffer, which serves as a first loss investor protection and remains throughout the loan, growing cumulatively from positive trading results.

"We are very proud to deliver strong performance and expand the flexibility for high net worth, family office and institutional investors seeking exposure to absolute return alternative investments," noted Ariel Shlien, CEO of SureFire Capital. "Qualified investors may now choose Equity and/or Fixed Income investment formats within our framework."
