This page is intended as a useful reference for current Mutiny investors.
To add or redeem funds, please complete our change form.
In order to accept additional funds or new investments, we need to receive the wires with funding five (5) business days before the month to make sure we are able to deploy the funds to our managers in a timely manner so we ask that you submit the change form no later than eight (8) business days before the end of the month.
Forms received later than eight (8) business days before the end of the month and wires received later than five (5) days before the end of the month will be held for allocation the subsequent month. (e.g. If the wire is received May 29, it will be invested July 1 rather than June 1 as it was not received 5 business days prior to June 1).
If you are redeeming funds, please note there are two parts to the process:
First, your investment will be reduced/end as of the last day of the month the request is made (assuming it is done before the 8 business day cut off date). For example, if you request a redemption on May 15th, your investment will be liquidated by the amount requested on the last day of May.
Second, the 3rd party administrator has to calculate the monthly performance and finalize the accounting for that month before we are able to send the full redemption payment. Because we need all of our managers to finalize their accounting before we can finalize ours, this is unlikely to be completed before month-end.
If an investor submits an online change request and subsequent signed change form document before the 8 business day cutoff date, we will send out approximately 90% of the full redemption payment by the 10th-15th of the following month. For example, any request made before the March cut off (circa March 22nd) the ~90% wire would go out around April 10th-15th. We do reserve the right to hold up to 10% of your investment until the next calendar year to finalize the audit and prevent any unnecessary back and forth, though this is not typical and we aim to finalize the full redemption within 60 days.
You may always access prior statements by searching your email for them.
The email will be titled “Long Volatility Fund, LLC | Investor Account Statement” or “Cockroach Fund, LLC | Investor Statement” and should arrive from firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do provide access to an online portal through our fund administrator, NAV Consulting. You should receive an email from them within the first few days of the month to create your login details.
There are a couple of things to note regarding the portal:
This means that the portal will not give you any additional information to what you will receive via email, merely let you access it in your browser as opposed to in an email.
If you would like access to the portal as a reference then we are happy to facilitate that. Simply complete the form at the bottom of this page and select the “I want access to the portal with my monthly statements” option from the drop-down menu.
Monthly statements will arrive via email from our fund administrator each month.
Statements should arrive around the 20th-25 of the following month. The email will be titled “Long Volatility Fund, LLC | Investor Account Statement” or “Cockroach Fund, LLC | Investor Statement” and should arrive from email@example.com. Please make sure to white list their email address.
Your statements will be sent to email address/email addresses submitted on the investor information form. If you would like duplicates sent to any additional addresses, please let us know.
You will also receive an estimate of fund performance on the first of each month for the prior month. Please note that this estimate is generally fairly accurate but large swings in the fund’s performance in the last week of the month can create some discrepancy and so it should be viewed as an estimate. We also send a letter with monthly commentary around the 25th of each month though the date varies depending on when we are able to finalize the fund’s accounting.
To make any changes to your account, please contact us for any account related requests suchs as:
Investors will receive an audited annual report with financial statements, detailing the activity and financials for the overall Fund in which they are invested.
Investors will also receive a K1 reporting their share of the prior year’s profits and losses for the Fund in which they invest. Here is an explanation of how K1s work in a fund structure if you are not familiar.
Because our funds are invested in other funds, we have to wait until we receive final audited financial statements from those funds to compile the audited annual report and K1. Those outside funds are not required to submit their audited financial statements with the regulators until March 31. We usually receive most of them around that time though it is typical for at least one or two of our managers to file an extension.
Once we have received the audited financial statements and K1s from the other funds, we will work with our third party administrator, to put together the annual financial statement for Mutiny Funds, and then turn them over to our auditor and tax preparer, Cohen & Co., to perform their certified audit of the financials.
Once that has all been completed, the annual report will be filed with the National Futures Association (NFA) and you will receive a copy. Typically this will be the end of June.
At the same time, the Cohen & Co. tax department will use the prior year’s financial statements to prepare the fund’s overall tax return and each investor’s individual K1s. These will be sent out to you as soon as we receive them.
We will do everything in our power to get investors the K1s promptly, but owing to the fact that we cannot begin our own process until we receive everything from our managers it is unlikely we will be able to send them out before June at the earliest. Based on prior years, investors should expect K1s In July or August which may require filing an extension.
As a matter of practice, we will file an extension for Mutiny’s overall tax return, given the need to wait for the third party fund’s K1s.
Our goal at Mutiny Funds is to help investors maximize the long-term growth of their portfolios. Unlike most, we believe that combining defensive-minded strategies such as long volatility with offensive-minded strategies providing the best opportunity for long-term capital growth, while reducing drawdowns in the interim.
