VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – (ACCESSWIRE - AUGUST 12, 2013)
Maple Leaf Funds is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Maxam Capital Management Ltd. (“Maxam”).
Maple Leaf Funds will combine its capital markets experience and relationships with the exceptional investment track record of Maxam to help bring the successful Maxam Diversified Strategies Fund (the “Fund”) to investors.
Mr. Travis Dowle, President and Fund Manager of Maxam Diversified Strategies Fund, will continue to focus on delivering superior risk-adjusted returns through multiple market cycles. Mr. Dowle manages the Fund with a flexible and opportunistic investment philosophy and an emphasis on event-driven opportunities and special situations.
The Maxam Diversified Strategies Fund1 gained 19.4% for the one year period ended July 31, 2013, and since inception on July 1, 2009, has generated an annualized return of 9.7% and a cumulative return of 45.9% (net of all fees and expenses). The Fund’s returns compare favourably to the S&P/TSX Total Return Index (the “TSX”) which generated a return of 7.7% annualized, 35.2% cumulative, over the same time frame.
Mr. Dowle began his investment career in 1996 with M.K. Wong & Associates, which was acquired by HSBC Asset Management. After leaving HSBC
in 2007, he was Vice President, Investments with Gibralt Capital and Second City Capital before he founded Maxam. Mr. Dowle is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Maxam. Not only does the Fund have an exceptional track record of performance, importantly these returns are quite strong on a risk-adjusted basis as evidenced by the Fund’s low beta of 0.58 relative to the TSX since inception. We believe that the alternative investment strategies employed by Mr. Dowle in the Maxam Diversified Strategies Fund will add considerable value to investors” said Mr. Shane Doyle, CEO of Maple Leaf Funds.
“Aligning with a partner that has extensive experience, contacts and relationships in the capital markets will enable me to maintain my focus on striving to deliver strong performance to investors in the Fund,” said Mr. Dowle. “Investors have experienced significant stock market volatility over the past few years and we believe that it is prudent for them to diversify their portfolios by adding exposure to investment funds that use alternative strategies to generate returns and to provide downside protection.”
