As a boutique alternative investment manager, Invico Capital’s mission is to capture unique private investment opportunities that provide investors with diversification from public markets and assists with stabilizing portfolio returns over the long term. Invico Diversified Income Fund (“IDI Fund”) is a portfolio of high yield lending and investment opportunities; a private investment offering focused on generating monthly income through a diversified portfolio, with asset collateralization or direct ownership in private assets. We target an 8%-10% preferred return plus potential profit sharing.

Invico was recently recognized by the Canadian Hedge Fund Awards in 2019, with the IDI Fund’s five-year track record placing 2nd in the Private Debt category. The IDI Fund achieved a 12.2% annual return over this period (Class F).

Founded in 2005, Invico Capital Corporation is a Calgary, Alberta based alternative investment fund management firm with approximately $500 million of private capital under management and approximately 10,000 investors.
