RiverNorth Enhanced Pre-Merger SPAC ETF

RiverNorth Enhanced Pre-Merger SPAC ETF (SPCZ) is an actively managed fund that invests in premerger securities of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). Also known as “blank check companies”, their business plan is to raise capital in an Initial Public Offering (IPO) and, within a specific period of time, engage in a merger or acquisition with one or more unidentified companies. 

  • The Fund aims to capture the potential discount, equity upside, and interest income of pre-merger SPACs. A goal of the Fund is to achieve positive absolute rates of return, particularly when measured against the level of risk assumed.

  • A SPAC is a public acquisition vehicle formed by a management sponsor team that raises capital via IPO with the intent to use that capital to merge with an existing private company within a finite period. The primary stages of a SPAC are the IPO, announcement of a business combination, closing of the business combination and listing of a new public entity (at which point the SPAC dissolves).

  • The Fund’s investment manager utilizes relative value analysis for each SPAC investment as well as trading strategies and programs in concert with proprietary trading strategies and programs that seek to derive value from buying and selling SPAC securities.

  • By purchasing SPACs in the Pre-Acquisition phase of the SPAC life cycle, management is able to make investments that offer downside mitigation due to the redemption value of the SPAC Trust. The portfolio is diversified by SPAC sponsor, by vintage, and across units, common shares, founder shares and warrants.

  • The Fund can be utilized in the alternatives allocation in a portfolio in an effort to capture alpha with low correlation to traditional asset classes.
