PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Variant Investments, LLC announced that the Variant Alternative Income Fund observed its 3-year anniversary on September 30, 2020.

"We are very proud of the performance of the Fund over these last three years" said JB Hayes, Variant Co-Founder and Principal. "Our focus on less correlated market niches really proved its value during the recent COVID-19 stress period. The team is excited as ever about our pipeline of investment opportunities".
The Fund also crossed the $500 million mark in assets under management (AUM) on August 14, 2020. The steady pace of AUM growth owes to adoption of the strategy across a broad range of investors, particularly among Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) seeking alternative investment opportunities for their clients.
"We are thrilled with how well-received NICHX has been as an investment strategy," said Bob Elsasser, Variant Co-Founder and Principal. "The current low interest rate environment is especially challenging for income-oriented investors and our ability to source and structure cash flows from less crowded corners has been key to the Fund's success. In addition, the interval fund structure makes access so much easier for investors."
About the Variant Alternative Income Fund (NICHX)
The Fund invests in private niche market opportunities with strong cash flow characteristics and low correlations to public equity and bond markets, such as litigation finance, royalties and specialty finance. Interval funds provide investors such features as daily pricing, 1099 tax reporting, quarterly liquidity with a fund-level gate of 5-25% of NAV, and the opportunity to access less liquid, potentially higher-yielding alternative investments.
