Summary

Canada’s only exempt market start-up hedge fund – talented traders and strategies are within your grasp. Capitalize on our experience.

The Kinship Trading System uses ‘Trend Following’ as the basis of its profit performance. The Trading System takes it a step further and incorporates the penchant of all markets to 'change'. It utilizes the Adaptive Market Hypothesis (AMH) brought forward by Dr. Andrew Lo. This evolutionary perspective in the AMH suggests that humans heuristically adapt to all markets and challenges to produce an optimal solution for them (us); every day something changes in the world, in our economies, in our internal or external processes, and in technology. This in turn creates an ever evolving market.

The Kinship Trading System utilizes dynamic systems that continually change with any market, evolving with the market movements of today, next year and the next decade as they occur.

Kinship provides different levels of reward. Monthly payouts, a potential gain on their original capital invested and if sufficient funds are invested - future eligibility to attain equity shares of Kinship Investments.

 

Problem

Traditional Canadian hedge funds require a high cost of entry to market.

Small talented traders are shut out of the market and do not have the opportunity to connect with larger investors to capitalize on costs of scale and have a platform that they can connect to.

Most traditional funds do not evolve. They utilize a static view of the world. Decisions are also mostly based on human discretion which can be compromised by emotions.

Investors seek potential profits that are not correlated to the economy, and the stock, bond, and currency markets.


Solution

Kinship Investments is providing a platform that is not available for investors and specialized traders. We are bringing these investors who are seeking profits that are uncorrelated from the markets together with traders that need an institutional grade system. We are doing this and building a business that can potentially rival traditional hedge funds in Canada and in the world.

Investor capital is independently monitored and safe. Your capital goes to an independent custodian who monitors all accounts. Kinship Investments Ltd. does not have the right to withdraw any of your capital. Only the custodian has this right. Kinship directs your capital (places trades) under the direction of its proprietary systems and independent traders. Your capital is not locked up for any period, but there is a redemption fee for the first year if required.

We have a written agreement that no Principal or employee of Kinship Investments can countermand our systems: We understand that most computer based system trading is adversely affected by human behavior. Kinship is confident of our potential success based on systems that are not compromised by human behavior.

  • Accredited Investors with under $500,000 seeking the potential of our fund returns.

 

Competitors

  • Exclusive trading agreements with successful independent traders who seek a institutional grade platform.
  • Independent oversight and incorporate a maximum stop procedure to protect investor capital.
  • Only hedge fund style exempt market company in Canada capitalizing on the need by fund of fund, exempt market dealers, and other investors in this space.

Revenue Model

We don’t make money until our investors make money. 

  • A 1.5% management fee is incorporated
  • Kinships 15% performance fee is only attained if a high water mark is achieved. The high water mark is calculated after Management fees
  • Compensation is therefore based on results

 

Funding

Kinship seeks to raise $3.5 Million in fund capital.

 

Exit Strategy

At anytime Kinship Investments may become registered and change to a more traditional hedge fund model. This could happen internally or by being purchased by a larger firm. This must happen once assets under management grow to a certain size or the amount of investors is above 50. Investors capital retention and our growth strategy will be forefront in these decisions.

A local IPO may be an option from Kinship Investments but more than likely an offshore fund may need to be established so that taxes are not a detriment to future growth.
