The Rivemont Long Short Fund is an alternative fund that aims to offer investors positive returns in all market conditions while maintaining a low correlation with traditional asset classes such as stocks and bonds. The Fund is available to Rivemont clients and investors through their advisor or broker.
The Fund’s holdings include equity securities traded on U.S. and Canadian markets. The Fund is long/short, meaning that the manager buys (long positions) securities of companies with upside potential, and sells short (short positions) securities of companies with downside potential.
The Fund is particularly well-suited to affluent clients seeking to diversify their portfolios in an investment with the potential for positive returns in bear markets. By allocating to the Fund for a diversified or equity portfolio, the portfolio can potentially outperform over time, while being better able to weather periods of market stress and crisis.
The Fund is readily available to external advisors and brokers via the Fundserv platform.

Our investment methodology for stock selection and portfolio construction is entirely top-down. As a first step, we will analyze the market as a whole, then the behavior of the activity sectors and finally we will settle our choice on the most attractive securities. We use a set of well-defined rules for the purchase and sale of securities, which enables us to eliminate all cognitive and emotional biases from the management of your portfolio.
One of the great advantage of our methodology is that it enables the Fund to be heavily underweighted and likely negatively exposed to equities when the stock market drop or crash, which can not only prevent significant losses but also provide an opportunity for positive returns in a challenging market environment.
