The fund of funds is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and features a simplified tax structure, making it available to established asset allocation models.

“This vehicle fills a gap in investors’ portfolios and we are proud to make an institutional grade product available in an affordable and flexible format for retail markets,” Asset Alliance President and CEO Bruce Lipnick said.

Thomas Broadbent, Garry Collins and Elliot Noma will lead the 21-member team running BTOP50.

Asset Alliance said this product is the first in what is expected to be a group of products set to be marketed by broker/dealers, private banks, registered investment advisers and wealth managers.
