The Empiric Strategic Income Fund, LP employs a long/short strategy and invests in primarily energy Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). The Fund aims to generate excess returns over MLP indices while taking significantly less exposure than traditional MLP buy and hold strategies. The Fund combines qualitative analysis and intuitive quantitative techniques while relying on fundamental based data to determine the attractiveness of companies in the universe. A technical overlay informs decisions to buy and sell at compelling times and net and gross exposures vary based on the opportunity set. The Empiric team has worked together since 2004 and launched the Empiric Market Neutral Fund in 2008. The Empiric Market Neutral Fund traded MLPs in a market neutral framework. The Empiric Strategic Income Fund capitalizes on models and existing infrastructure developed for the market neutral fund. AUM is not provided.
