Alternative Investment Fund Overview
The Kingsbridge Alternative Strategies Fund is an alternative to traditional yield investments like bonds and private credit. The “alternative yield” is generated by investing in a portfolio of home equity investments (HEIs) and the equity certificates of securitized pools of home equity investments.
The Kingsbridge Alternative Strategies Funds was established in 2009 with a contrarian and innovative approach to alternative investments. The fund’s strategy began in 2009 with a multi-strategy approach, which evolved to a single strategy fund as of August 2019, focused solely on investing in Home Equity Investment Contracts.
As the only pure play fund focused on this developing asset class, the Kingsbridge Alternative Strategies Fund has emerged as a leader in investing in the formerly inaccessible, owner occupied residential real estate market.
The Kingsbridge Alternative Strategies Fund, LP is an open ended, private fund exempt from registration under Regulation D 3(c)5, that is open to investors that qualify as Accredited Investors and Qualified Clients.
