Variant Investments, LLC is pleased to announce that the Variant Alternative Income Fund reached its 5-year anniversary on October 2, 2022. NICHX has generated annualized net returns of 8.94% since inception (as of 10/31/2022). The focus on niche, private market opportunities has resulted in limited correlation to the broader markets through a variety of challenging environments.
“We are honored to have achieved such an important milestone” said J.B. Hayes, Variant Co-Founder and Principal, “and so grateful for the strong support from a diversified set of investors.” With continued inflows throughout 2022, assets under management in the fund surpassed $2 billion during the 3rd quarter.
Additionally, the Firm is excited to see continued growth of the Variant Impact Fund , which celebrated its 1-Year anniversary on November 1, 2022. IMPCX has generated 11.66% net returns since inception (as of 10/31/2022).
“The Impact Fund has been able to deliver on its promise of both strong financial returns and meaningful positive impact”, said Bob Elsasser, Variant Co-Founder and Principal. “We encourage investors to read the fund’s Annual Impact Report for more details on how investor capital in IMPCX is making a difference to advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals”.
The Fund offers investors efficient access to a diversified portfolio of unconventional income-generating assets.
