Hundredfold Advisors, LLC was established in 2004 as a registered investment adviser (RIA) under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Hundredfold provides active investment management specifically to the Hundredfold Select Funds. Through our passion for philanthropy, subadvisory fees earned by Hundredfold are passed on to a 501(c)(3) Supporting Organization, Simply Distribute, which supports medical, religious, scientific and educational activities throughout the world.
Hundredfold Advisors uses active management to seek steady gains while limiting losses. The goal of active management is not to buy at the exact low or to sell at the exact high, but rather to move into cash and sidestep the volatile negative periods so that the cash is available to re-enter the market when an upward trend begins.
About Advisors Preferred, the Fund’s adviser
Advisors Preferred, an SEC-registered investment adviser, provides support for The Hundredfold Select Alternative Fund by performing the many operational, trading, reporting, legal and compliance responsibilities, enabling Fund managers to focus on managing money. Advisors Preferred also provides substantial sales and marketing support to help grow assets under management, thus lowering expenses for all shareholders.
The investment philosophy for the Hundredfold Select Alternative Fund centers on stability of returns via diversification. We believe the best way to achieve these goals is to invest in a mix of active fixed income, alternatives and opportunistic alternatives (our proprietary equity trading strategies) comprising target allocations of 60%, 30% and 10%, respectively, of the portfolio. This investment strategy has low correlation compared to other approaches, with lower volatility as a way to manage risk and deliver returns to investors.
