TFS Capital, an employee-owned independent advisory firm that provides portfolio management services to investment funds, today announced the 10-year anniversary of its TFS Market Neutral Fund (Ticker: TFSMX). The TFS Market Neutral Fund has remained an industry leader despite increased competition from other managers looking to capitalize on growing investor demand for alternative strategies in registered products.

“It’s exciting to see the fund cross the 10 year mark, especially in light of so many other alternative mutual funds being launched within the last few years,” said Sam Harris, Director of Client Relations at TFS Capital. “We launched the market neutral fund at a time when Morningstar didn’t have any “alternative” fund categories. Today, liquid alternatives are one of the fastest growing sectors in the industry and our fund’s managers have been recognized over the years as category leaders for their performance.”

“The track record and longevity of the TFS Market Neutral Fund validates the firm’s investing model and reinforces its position as an innovator in the liquid alternatives space,” added Harris. “We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished and we look forward to providing value to our shareholders for many more years to come.”

The TFS Market Neutral Fund and its investment team have been recognized multiple times since it was launched in 2004.The TFS Market Neutral Fund is a four-time Lipper Fund Award(1) recipient and its team of managers was recognized with the first-ever Morningstar Alternatives Fund Manager of the Year award in 2012(2). The managers include Eric Newman, Kevin Gates, Larry Eiben, Richard Gates, Chao Chen, and Yan Liu.

TFS Capital is recognized as an innovator in the liquid alternatives market. The firm, which specializes in alternative investments, was one the first advisors to take a hedge fund-like market neutral strategy and package it into a ’40 Act registered product.
