Pinnacle Wealth Brokers Launches Retail Focused Hedge Fund

Calgary, Alberta CANADA, February 19, 2014 /FSC/ – Pinnacle Wealth Brokers has officially launched the Niagara Access Alpha Fund, a unique offering, representing the only Canadian hedge fund of managed futures structured specifically for the retail private marketplace. “The Niagara Access Alpha Fund provides access to a product that has a demonstrated track record of performance, and we are excited to bring this offering into the marketplace for our investors,” states Rick Unrau, President and CEO of Pinnacle. “We are delighted to have been granted exclusive distribution of the fund, and look forward to working with the experienced team at Niagara Capital Partners.” The Niagara Access Alpha Fund offering was created by Niagara Capital Partners Ltd., experienced investment fund managers, to give retail investors the opportunity to invest in the Niagara Discovery Fund, which had traditionally only accepted large subscriptions from high net worth individuals and family offices. “It had to have small minimums. It had to be RRSP eligible. And it needed solid distribution,” said co-founder David Rothberg. “The quality of their agents, their wide market penetration and their high standards of compliance convinced us to go with Pinnacle as our exclusive agents.”
