Tarpon Fund Posts Strong Early Results : Innovative Fund From Islamorada Investment Management Gains 18.5% in November
Date:12/10/2008

Islamorada Investment Management (IIM), a fee-only registered investment adviser based in the Florida Keys, announced today that its recently launched Tarpon Fund achieved returns in November of 18.5%.

ISLAMORADA, Fla. (Business Wire EON) December 10, 2008 -- The Tarpon Fund is an innovative alternative to actively managed mutual funds. Unlike most mutual funds, the Tarpon Fund has no conflicts of interest and contains a significant portion of the net worth of its portfolio manager. Using novel technology, the fund's core portfolio is linked to the secure accounts of other Tarpon Fund investors. Trades made in the core portfolio are executed simultaneously across all investor accounts.

Launched in November, the Tarpon Fund is more concentrated, provides better transparency and is significantly less expensive to investors than the vast majority of actively managed mutual funds. Using value investing principles, the fund seeks to maximize long-term appreciation while minimizing the risk of permanent loss.

Cale Smith, portfolio manager of the Tarpon Fund, said, "While we are pleased with the fund's early results, our goal is to outperform over the long-term. We may never see such extraordinary results over a single month period again. That said, value investing strategies have historically led the way out of previous recessions, and we feel the Tarpon Fund is well-positioned for the turn whenever it happens.

"We were fortunate to acquire shares in 16 terrific businesses at a time when fear in the market seemed at its highest. At the end of November the market also realized the largest five-day percentage gain since 1933, though it received limited attention from most media outlets. We believe we are now witnessing one of the best buying opportunities of the next five years. Tarpon Fund investors own some truly impressive companies that despite recent gains are still trading at remarkably low valuations."

The Tarpon Fund does not use margin nor short-sell, and invests only in domestically listed companies. The fund's returns are presented on a pre-tax basis, net of all fees and transaction costs. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
