We are excited to announce that our firstborn, the Algonquin Debt Strategies Fund (ADSF), achieved a significant milestone this week.

In addition, the Fund picked up another piece of hardware for the third Best 5y Sharpe Ratio.
They say success is a combination of talent, hard work, and luck. We agree and are indeed very lucky to work with such a talented and hard-working group of individuals. As founders, we would like to take this opportunity to both recognize and thank our team for their dedication, contributions, and bad jokes.
Our success equation also includes incredible support from our investors, service providers, and business partners. As we have said since the inception of the Fund in 2015, ‘it takes a village to raise a fund’, and we are very grateful and appreciative of our villagers.
