Venator Founders Fund is a North American long/short equity strategy which strives to capitalize on exceptional investment opportunities. The Fund focuses on business fundamentals with a bottom-up approach in order to identify high growth companies that are undiscovered (or under-appreciated) by the market, as well as out of favour companies trading at low valuations that do not reflect ‘hidden assets’, intermediate business prospects, reversing business trends, or changing managerial philosophies.
PLEASE NOTE: Venator Investment Trust is the RSP eligible version of Venator Founders Fund.
Venator Investment Trust is structured as a ‘Fund of Funds’ and serves as the RSP eligible vehicle for Venator Founders Fund. The low level of portfolio exposure to financial & resource companies makes Venator Investment Trust an excellent diversification vehicle for Canadian investors.
The Fund is available to ‘accredited’ investors; is eligible to be held in both registered & non-registered accounts, and carries a low initial investment amount of $25,000. As such, it’s a great way for accredited investors to participate in the Founders Fund strategy.

The rates of return are net of all fees and expenses.

Please note that the Venator Funds may have different and potentially higher levels of risk. References made to market indices do not imply that the Venator Funds will achieve similar investment returns.
