Blackheath's Managed Futures Funds Now Available on FundSERV

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - Christopher Foster, CEO of Blackheath Fund Management Inc. of Toronto, Canada is pleased to announced that their Managed Futures products, Blackheath Futures Fund L.P. and Blackheath Volatility Arbitrage Fund, LP are now both available to Canadian investors through FundSERV.

Blackheath believes, as do many institutional investors, that Managed Futures offer investors diversification that stands up even during periods of extreme market stress.

The Blackheath Futures Fund employs a unique sentiment-driven Investment Strategy that has been able to deliver positive returns to investors for over seven consecutive years. The Blackheath Volatility Arbitrage Fund is the first and only volatility arbitrage fund in Canada with an Investment Strategy that has generated an annualized compound return of 27.72% since inception.

Historically, it has been very difficult for Canadian investors to get access to Managed Futures products through the dealer network. By obtaining a FundSERV listing for both Funds, Blackheath is proud to be one of the few firms making Managed Futures available to a wide variety of Canadian investors.

"The benefit of being on FundSERV is two-fold. First, investors can now, with the agreement of their dealer, hold units in Blackheath funds at the same place where they hold their other investments, allowing for consolidated reporting. Second, new investors may now be able to purchase units through their traditional wealth advisor, simplifying the investment process. In our view, this is an important step toward giving Canadian investors more choice in the Managed Futures space, a part of the investment landscape woefully under-represented in Canadian portfolios," comments Mr. Foster.

About Blackheath: Blackheath Fund Management Inc. is a Managed Futures advisory firm focused on delivering high quality absolute return strategies to our clients. Through our funds and individual managed accounts, our objective is to create positive returns that have a low correlation to traditional asset classes, regardless of market direction.
