Rydex SGI launches four funds


Rydex SGI has launched four mutual funds that aim to help investors weather the ups and downs of challenging market environments.

The funds are the Rydex SGI Event Driven and Distressed Strategies Fund, Rydex SGI Long Short Interest Rate Strategy Fund, Rydex SGI Long Short Equity Fund and Rydex SGI Alternative Strategies Fund.

With the addition of these new funds, the company’s alternatives line-up includes 12 mutual funds and nine exchange-traded products.

"Investors are increasingly demanding accessible alternative investment exposures to help them diversify their investment portfolios and provide improved risk/return characteristics," says Richard Goldman, chief executive of Rydex SGI. "Today’s launch continues Rydex SGI’s tradition of bringing institutional-style investments such as managed futures and long/short commodities mainstream. In tandem with our much sought after advisor-oriented education about alternative investments, we strive to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to offering financial professionals unique and diverse alternatives to help them differentiate their practices and deliver enhanced results for their clients."

Rydex SGI Event Driven and Distressed Strategies Fund offers investors an opportunity to profit during a variety of market cycles. The strategy, which may help diversify an equity allocation in an investment portfolio, aims to exploit pricing inefficiencies or premiums that may occur as a result of corporate mergers and acquisitions, as well as bankruptcies and financial restructurings.

The actively managed Rydex SGI Long Short Interest Rate Strategy Fund is geared toward helping investors profit during falling, rising or flat interest rate environments. This fund aims to take advantage of short-term movements in US Treasury prices and may be used to diversify a core fixed-income allocation.

Rydex SGI Long Short Equity Fund provides an opportunity to capture returns on both rising and falling equity movements.

Rydex SGI Alternative Strategies Fund is an investment that provides exposure to a benchmark that corresponds to the performance of a broad range of hedge fund alternatives.
