Prospectus Funds (“Public Funds”) and Offering Memorandum Funds (“Private Funds”) (collectively the “Funds”)
EHP Funds is the investment manager of the Public Funds. EdgeHill Partners is the investment manager of the Private Funds.
The Funds offered by EHP Funds are alternative mutual funds distributed through authorized dealers. Private Funds are offered pursuant to available exemptions from the prospectus requirement under applicable securities laws. The Funds are available only in those jurisdictions where it may be lawfully offered for sale.
The Funds have the ability to invest in asset classes or use investment strategies that are not permitted for conventional mutual funds. The specific strategies that differentiate the Funds from conventional mutual funds include: increased use of derivatives for hedging and non‐hedging purposes; increased ability to sell securities short; and the ability to borrow cash to use for investment purposes. While these strategies will be used in accordance with the applicable Fund’s investment objectives and strategies, during certain market conditions they may accelerate the pace at which your investment decreases in value. Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees, performance fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Please read the offering materials (including the Simplified Prospectus, Annual Information Form, Fund Facts or Offering Memorandum, where applicable) for a particular Fund before investing. Securities of the Funds are not guaranteed by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation or by any other government deposit insurer.
Returns shown are annualized and since inception unless otherwise noted, and are net of fees and expenses. Statistics are calculated using monthly returns. Partial year returns are unaudited. Index statistics use total return indices. The composition of a funds’ portfolio could differ significantly from an index due to the investment strategy employed, and includes differences such as use of credit strategies, use of equal weight positions, use of short positions, varying fund net exposure, varying currency exposure, and investing in small capitalization stocks.
The compounded rate of return in “Growth of $100,000 Investment” chart is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the investment fund or returns on investment in the investment fund.
The EHP Global Multi-Strategy Alternative Fund (formerly the EHP Global Multi-Strategy Fund) (the “GMS Fund”) was not a reporting issuer during the period of December 28, 2020, to December 31, 2021 (the “GMS Relief Period”).The EHP Multi-Asset Absolute Return Alternative Fund (formerly the EHP Multi-Asset Absolute Return Fund)(the "MAAR Fund") was not a reporting issuer during the period of November 1, 2021, to August 1, 2022 (the "MAAR Relief Period"). EHP Funds, the manager of both the GMS Fund and MAAR Fund, obtained exemptive relief on behalf of each such Fund to permit the disclosure of performance data of the units of the applicable Fund relating to the respective GMS Relief Period and MAAR Relief Period, prior to which each such Fund was not a reporting issuer. On January 1, 2022, the GMS Fund and on August 2, 2022, the MAAR Fund each became a reporting issuer. While the manager reduced, as of January 1, 2022, and August 2, 2022, where applicable, both the management fee rate (from 2% to 1.9% for Class A and Class UA units and from 1% to 0.9% for Class F and Class UF units) and the performance fee rate (from 20% to 15% for Class A, UA, F and UF units) for the applicable class of units of the applicable Fund, the other operating expenses of each Fund would have been higher during the respective GMS Relief Period and MAAR Relief Period that each Fund was not a reporting issuer due to the additional regulatory requirements applicable to a reporting issuer.
