VENATOR ALTERNATIVE INCOME FUND is an actively managed, long-bias North American yield mandate that strives to generate capital growth, over time, with relatively low volatility and an emphasis on capital preservation. The Fund strives to provide improved downside protection and better risk-adjusted returns as compared to traditional fixed income funds. 

The underlying strategy is best described as ‘yield plus’, which refers to the objective of finding opportunities that combine attractive yield with the potential for additional return, without taking unnecessary risk(s).
