Explain the launch Ridgedale Advisors with MSP's inception of 1986?

- The principals of Ridgedale have been trading MSP since its inception in 1986 in companies preceding Ridgedale. Co-CIO Mark Rosenberg founded RXR Management in 1983 and initiated the MSP strategy in 1986.

- RXR Management sold a majority interest to State Street Global Advisors in 2001 and the company was renamed SSARIS Advisors.

-The principals of Ridgedale repurchased SSgA’s interest in 2016 and established Ridgedale in 2017. The track record back to 1986 is now owned by Ridgedale.

What differentiates Ridgedale Advisors from other investment firms particularly hedge funds that are in a similar space?

- Ridgedale owns track record dating back to 1986 the program has demonstrated consistent performance, downside risk mitigation, and a dynamic correlation profile.

- The program also demonstrates differentiation relative to other futures-based managers, providing strong upside capture during periods of rising volatility while mitigating performance drawdowns during periods of directionless volatility that can negatively affect purely divergent strategies.

What are the opportunities right now in the current market environment and on a go forward basis that make it the right time to invest in the Ridgedale strategies?

- Ridgedale’s Multi-Strategy Program implements a convergent/divergent investment approach to generate positive uncorrelated alpha since 1986, performing especially well during crisis environments.

- Our program can provide diversification to clients’ equity and fixed income allocations as well as their allocation to alternative investments because of our non-correlation opportunities
