Hackensack, NJ – After recently being nominated for two HFMWeek's 2018 US Hedge Fund Performance awards, Bramshill Investments won for Best 40 Act Credit. Other nominees in the category included BlackRock Global Long/Short Credit, American Beacon GLG Total Return Fund, Brandywine Global Alternative Credit, Guggenheim Macro Opportunities Fund and Water Island Credit Opportunities.
Bramshill's core investment strategy, the Bramshill's Income Performance Strategy was spun out of an absolute return fixed income strategy managed by Bramshill Founder and CIO Art DeGaetano while at GLG Partners. The Strategy has a proven track record of over nine years with an absolute return objective. Since inception, the Strategy has delivered an annualized net return of 7.34% and a cumulative total net return of 99.49%. Today, Bramshill Investments has approximately $1.45 billion in assets under management.
The Strategy is an alternative to traditional fixed income and this approach has led to the recognition from HFMWeek and from investors as the Firm's AUM has grown to approximately $1.45 billion as of 9/30/2018. Bramshill seeks to harness the best risk-reward investments across fixed income with a flexible and opportunistic mindset. The firm manages its strategies in both separately managed accounts and mutual funds.
"At the firm and portfolio level we prioritize risk management across all strategies, which have allowed us to produce significant returns for our investors while avoiding material drawdowns" said Art DeGaetano, CIO and Founder of Bramshill Investments. "Our entire team is honored that we have been recognized by HFMWeek and our peers."
