Lafayette,Louisiana, March 18, 2021– The biblically responsible Issachar Fund announces the launch of an I share class (ticker: LIOTX), in addition to the N share class (ticker:LIONX) currently available. This institutional share class is designed to provide a lower expense to investors who can meet the $100,000 initial minimum investment and expand Issachar’s distribution channels. The I share has a lower expense ratio with no 12b-1 fees or upfront fees and is designed for high net worth individuals, institutional investors and financial advisors.
“We are delighted to make a lower-cost share class available to investors looking to align their investments with biblical values. We believe that the Issachar Fund’s distinctive hedge-fund style risk management delivered in a mutual fund wrapper meets an important need for faith-based investors,” commented Dexter Lyons, portfolio manager of the Issachar Fund.
In 2020, the Issachar Fund grew assets from $11 million to over $50 million as of year end. The actively managed mutual fund delivered returns of 26.19% for the year of 2020 with a maximum drawdown of only -9.87%, and successfully attracted $32.4Mil of net new assets from investors buying into the fund.
