Monea Investments, LLC Announces Launch of Innovative Alternative Bond Strategy

Emerging investments firm experiences early success and expands strategy offerings


TACOMA, Wash., May 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Today, Monea Investments, LLC, a successful emerging alternative investments firm, announced the launch and funding of an innovative new product: The Monea Bond Alternative Strategy. This strategy provides bond investors with a compelling new alternative to current bond offerings.

The Monea Bond Alternative Strategy was designed with two things in mind: 1) to provide bond investors with a higher potential return than most bond offerings available today, and 2) to provide investors a better opportunity to make returns in the event interest rates move higher.

Erik Ogard, CFA, Monea Investments President and CEO commented: "We built this strategy because we believe bond investors, particularly those invested in commingled bond vehicles like mutual funds, are at a heightened risk of loss when interest rates begin to move higher. We want to give them a better chance of weathering, and even thriving in, such an event." He added: "The Monea Bond Alternative Strategy nicely compliments our existing Monea Equity Alternative Strategy. Together, these two strategies provide our clients with world-class liquid alternative investment strategies."

Monea Investments designed and built the bond alternative strategy over the course of two years, using the firm's existing proprietary quantitative techniques. Patrick Adrian, CFA, portfolio manager and trader expressed confidence in this strategy: "The Bond Alternative Strategy represents one of the best opportunities I have seen for bond investors to help offset the risks of a rate increase. This strategy has excellent odds of providing solid returns to investors."

The Monea Bond Alternative Strategy is currently available to investors through separate accounts. As with other strategies offered by Monea Investments, this service is offered without charging a management fee. Instead, Monea charges a quarterly fee as a percentage of trading profits. Mr. Ogard stated, "Monea has perfectly aligned our interests with our clients' interests. We only charge clients if the strategy they are invested in produces profitable results." He added: "We believe that Monea is uniquely positioned to provide investors with world-class returns and to dramatically improve investment portfolios."

Monea Investments, LLC is a boutique asset management firm based in Tacoma, WA. Founded in 2013, Monea Investments designs, builds, and manages absolute return investment strategies using proprietary quantitative techniques. The firm currently manages $14 million for high net worth investors.
