Destra Announces Expansion of Alternative Product Lineup with Acquisition of Former Multi-Strategy Growth & Income Fund
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 7, 2018--Destra Capital Advisors LLC (“Destra”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the fund formerly known as Multi-Strategy Growth & Income Fund (the “Fund”) in a fund adoption approved by both the Fund’s board and its shareholders by proxy completed in late-November. The Fund’s new name is the Destra Multi-Alternative Fund, effective immediately. The Fund will retain its current managers, Pinhook Capital, LLC (“Pinhook Capital”), now in a sub-advisory role.
“We are excited to bring this important product on to our investment platform at Destra,” said Dominic Martellaro, CEO of Destra. “We have taken great strides in the last 18 months to position Destra as a premier specialist in the alternative investment marketplace. With the addition of the newly-renamed Destra Multi-Alternative Fund, we now have five distinct, alternative oriented offerings currently in our suite. We see this Fund and its strategy as instrumental to growing our alternatives platform with advisors.”
The Fund is one of the oldest and most tenured closed-end interval funds in the market. It has a mandate to invest for total return with an emphasis on current income. The team at Pinhook Capital has successfully managed the Fund through its multi-alternative strategy and will continue to manage the portfolio as the sub-adviser to the Fund.
“We saw a great opportunity to partner with Destra, which we believe will be important and meaningful to both the Fund and firm,” said Ray Lucia Jr., CEO of Pinhook Capital. “We look forward to benefiting from Destra’s deep experience with alternative investments, fund operations and business development. Given the current market environment, it feels this partnership came together at the right time for each of our firms and the investors in the fund.”
The Fund is a continuously offered, non-diversified, closed-end interval fund that has an investment objective to seek returns from capital appreciation and income with an emphasis on income generation. The Fund pays income monthly, and quarterly redemption offers of no less than 5% of shares outstanding*. The Fund seeks to achieve long-term performance non-correlated to the broad stock and bond markets. It invests primarily in real estate investment trusts, debt and equity income securities, and alternative investment funds.
