Palmer Square launches second ’alternative’ mutual fund


Palmer Square Capital Management has introduced the Palmer Square SSI Alternative Income Fund, the firm’s second open-ended mutual fund in the alternative investment space.

In partnership with Montage Investments, Palmer Square and SSI have raised approximately USD160 million of investment capital to launch the fund.

The fund seeks absolute returns and a steady income stream by investing long in convertible securities and by establishing short positions in the common stock of the issuers of those convertible securities. The fund offers investor and institutional share classes, trading under the symbols PSCAX and PSCIX, respectively. It is sub-advised by SSI Investment Management. With nearly 40 years of experience developing innovative investment strategies for a wide range of investors, SSI has managed this alternative income strategy since 1995.

"We believe the SSI team has a very successful, 17-year track record of managing this alternative income strategy, which leverages SSI’s deep expertise in the convertible bond space," says Christopher D Long, founder and president of Palmer Square Capital Management. "The strategy complements our focus on delivering risk-adjusted returns with low beta and correlation to traditional markets."

According to SSI’s chief executive officer, Amy Jo Gottfurcht: "We are very excited to partner with Palmer Square in making this strategy available in a mutual fund, which provides us the opportunity to make our alternative income solution available to a wider range of investors."

The fund was enabled by Palmer Square’s affiliation with Montage Investments – a diverse group of asset managers that offer a wide range of strategies designed to meet clients’ needs. Montage offers multiple investment solutions to financial intermediaries, including mutual funds, closed-end funds, separately managed accounts and alternative partnership investments.

According to Gary Henson, president and chief investment officer of Montage Investments: “By offering this strategy in a mutual fund format, we are seeking to deliver our firm’s overall goal of bringing financial advisors distinct alternative investment solutions that look beyond the traditional style boxes."
