Good Soil Investment Launches Accelerated Opportunities LP
Emmet Peppers' Good Soil Investment Management has launched its first hedge fund - Accelerated Opportunities LP Concentrated Growth Fund. The fund is focused on investing in exchange-traded early-stage, U.S.-based disruptive publicly traded companies while pioneering a fee structure that will divert half of all management fees to select charities.
A 506(c) offering, Accelerated Opportunities LP is now raising investor capital. Since Peppers launched the fund in January with $100,000 of his own money, it has generated just over a 10,000% gross return from start date to Nov 30th. Peppers' trading philosophy is based on his proprietary process, which includes a deep dive into trends, identifying key investors and resources to glean insight, and combining it with a focus on mass psychology. To yield maximum returns, Accelerated Opportunities LP will also consider purchasing long-dated options contracts.
Peppers hopes his promise of diverting half of all management fees inspires other investment managers to adopt similar practices.
"My goal is not just for this fund by itself to be successful but to also set an example for a new trend of social good within capitalism," Peppers said. "We've seen ESG (environmental, social and governance) become a bigger and bigger trend, and I believe charitable giving should become the next way for capitalism to continue evolving successfully. I want to show that capitalism can give back beyond simply paying taxes."
Fees earmarked for donations will go to the Peppers Family Good Soil Foundation, which supports a variety of local, national and international charities, including International Justice Mission, Nutrition Coalition and charter schools such as Success Academy.
