WINDSOR, Conn., July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:SSNC) today announced the tenth anniversary of the ALPS|CoreCommodity Management CompleteCommodities Strategy Fund (the "Fund"). The Fund is an open-ended mutual fund managed by SS&C ALPS Advisors, a subsidiary of SS&C.

The Fund seeks to provide comprehensive access to global commodities and commodity equity markets, collateralized by U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Bonds ("TIPS"), U.S. Treasuries, and cash. Over $2.6 billion has been invested in the fund strategy for over ten years. The firm's total assets under management were more than 3.2 billion as of June 30, 2020.  

"Our team is gratified to celebrate ten years of working together with SS&C ALPS Advisors to outperform the major commodity indexes in nine of the past ten years," commented Bradford L.

The Fund provides investors with comprehensive access to leading commodities such as oil, gold, copper and corn, offering investors the opportunity to benefit from global growth and increasing demand. Additionally, the CoreCommodity team managing the Fund averages more than 28 years of experience in commodities.

"We are pleased to mark a decade of rewarding partnership with CoreCommodity Management," said Laton Spahr, President of SS&C ALPS Advisors. "The Fund's performance in comparison to sector benchmarks reflects the strength of CoreCommodity's investment acumen and management experience. As investors increasingly look toward commodities to diversify their portfolios, we believe the Fund will continue to prove attractive to investors seeking diversification benefits and the potential to hedge against inflation."

Investors should consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing, including "Additional Risks" as described in the prospectus.

Important Risks

ALPS Advisors, Inc. and CoreCommodity Management, LLC are registered with the CFTC as the Commodity Pool Operator and respectively as the Commodity Trading Advisor and both are NFA members.

The Fund's investments may subject the Fund to significantly greater volatility than investments in traditional securities and involve substantial risks, including risk of a significant portion on their principal value.

The commodities markets and the prices of various commodities may fluctuate widely based on a variety of factors. Because the Fund's performance is linked to the performance of highly volatile commodities, investors should consider purchasing shares of the Fund only as part of an overall diversified portfolio and should be willing to assume the risks of potentially significant fluctuations in the value of the Fund. The Fund invests in commodity futures related investments, which are derivative instruments that allow access to a diversified portfolio of commodities without committing substantial amounts of capital. Additional risks of Commodity Futures Related Investments include liquidity risk and counterparty credit risk. Counterparty Risk is the risk that a party to a transaction will fail to fulfill its obligations. The term is often applied specifically to swap agreements in which no clearinghouse guarantees the performance of the contract. Liquidity Risk is the risk stemming from the lack of marketability of an investment that cannot be bought or sold quickly enough to prevent or minimize a loss.

Another principal risk of investing in the Fund is equity risk, which is the risk that the value of the securities held by the Fund will fall due to general market and economic conditions, perceptions regarding the industries in which the issuers of securities held by the Fund participate or factors relating to specific companies in which the Fund invests. The Fund's investments in non-U.S. issuers may be even more volatile and may present more risks than investments in U.S. issuers. Equity investments in commodity-related companies may not move in the same direction and to the same extent as the underlying commodities.

ALPS Portfolio Solutions Distributor, Inc. is the distributor for the ALPS | CoreCommodity Management CompleteCommodities® Strategy Fund. ALPS Advisors, Inc. is the investment advisor to the Fund and CoreCommodity Management, LLC, is the investment sub-advisor. ALPS is not affiliated with CoreCommodity Management, LLC.
