Past performance is not indicative of future results.

Overview 

The A3 Alternative Income Fund, a closed-end interval fund, offers investors efficient access to a portfolio of non-traditional income-generating assets. The Fund’s investment objective is to seek total return through investments that offer regular income or the potential for price appreciation. A3 Financial Investments is led by an investment team with decades of experience investing in capital markets. Interval funds provide investors such features as daily pricing, 1099 tax reporting, and quarterly repurchase offers with a fund-level redemption of 5-25% of NAV. The interval fund structure allows non accredited investors the opportunity to access less liquid, potentially higher yielding alternative investments.
