BTH Tactical

Welcome to the AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Fund

Objective:

The AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Fund is a prospectus fund, available to a wide audience of potential Canadian investors.  The AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Fund is managed by Barry Hirowatari and Aventine Management Group under a sub-advisory agreement with Qwest Investment Fund Management Ltd and AlphaDelta Management Corp.

The primary objective of the AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Fund is to earn long-term capital growth by executing a tactical investment strategy using equity, Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) and American Depositary Receipts (ADR) securities listed on the New York, American, NASDAQ, and Toronto Stock Exchanges.  The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objectives by investing in a portfolio of long positions and, at various times, cash, equity securities and ETF’s representing exposure to bonds or commodities (including precious metals).

Strategy:

The AlphaDelta Tactical Growth Fund is a non-traditional investment vehicle that seeks to generate long term capital growth investing in major North American equity indexes. This strategy seeks equities which possess strong earnings momentum, positive relative price strength and an attractive technical profile.

The Fund is tactical in nature and may, at times, be materially over or underweight certain sectors of the market.  The Fund utilizes a technical sell discipline to manage downside risk and may completely exit the equities in favour of investment holdings in less correlated asset classes such as cash, bonds, or precious metals.

Suitability:

  • Investors who are seeking long-term capital growth.
  • Investors who are not concerned with short term price fluctuations.
  • Investors who are willing to accept medium risk.

The Tactical Growth Investment Process

The Buy Discipline

The North American stock universe is filtered through two proprietary screens.  The first screen is fundamental in nature and focuses on earnings growth and relative price strength.  The underlying premise of our investment approach is that in order to own a portfolio with above average performance it is wise to invest in companies with above average earnings growth.  The second screen is a technical, trend-based filter which requires stocks to be in a defined “uptrend” for a passing score.

The Sell Discipline

It is our belief that the lack of a strong, well defined and consistently executed sell discipline is a major weak spot in portfolio management on an industry-wide basis.  Our Tactical Growth investment process employs a “hard wired” sell discipline based on trends and price is strictly adhered to.

Heat

Heat refers to the size of each position.  We optimize the Fund’s portfolio by added heat to winning positions and subtracted it from losing positions.  In other words, we want to own more of the companies that are working well and own less of the companies that are not.
