A Unique Investment Strategy for the Coming Market Correction – The BMG Diversified Hedge Fund

Markham, ON – (October 29, 2019) – BMG Management Services Inc. (“BMS” or the “Manager”) is pleased to announce the launch of the BMG Diversified Hedge Fund (the “Fund”). The strategy of the Fund is premised upon the Manager’s expectation that there will be a significant market correction in the near future, and the fact that the price of gold typically increases dramatically during a market correction. The Fund has a two-stage investment strategy. Stage One: the Interim Bullion Strategy invests solely in gold until the global market corrects. Stage Two: the Long-Term Balanced Strategy then reallocates the portfolio among top-quality equity funds, fixed income funds and REITs, as well as gold and silver. Investors will benefit from the anticipated capital appreciation of gold in Stage One, and will also benefit from investing in a high-quality, diversified portfolio at what the Manager expects to be significant discounts driven by the correction as the Fund transitions to Stage Two.

“This new strategy is very simple: no leverage, derivatives or exotic algorithms,” said Nick Barisheff, President and CEO, BMG Group Inc., the parent company of the Manager.

The Manager has back-tested this strategy using market data from the 2008 crash. If this strategy had been followed in 2008, investors would have generated returns in excess of 25% annually. Past performance is no assurance of future performance, there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve returns of this magnitude, and there is no assurance that the circumstances of 2008 will be repeated.  However, many of the world’s leading financial experts believe that a major correction is coming, and that it will be worse than the 2008 crash.

“Including real estate and precious metals in the balanced portfolio in Stage Two gives the Fund exposure to two assets classes that perform very well over the longer term, yet are generally excluded from typical balanced fund portfolios,” added Mr. Barisheff.

The Fund’s investment exposure to gold will be achieved exclusively by holding Class I units of the BMG Gold BullionFund, one of the BMG Funds managed by the Manager. The Manager will charge a management fee of 0.5% per annum to the Fund during Stage One, but will not charge a management fee in respect of the Fund’s investment in the BMG Funds. Transitioning to Stage Two, the management fee charged to the Fund will increase to 1.5% per annum. The BMG Funds are public mutual funds. The public documents of the BMG Funds are available for review at www.sedar.com.

Investment in the BMG Diversified Hedge Fund is only available to accredited investors. The minimum subscription is $25,000.
