NOVATO, Calif., Dec. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ –Â Good Soil Investment Management, founded by Emmet Peppers, a former prime brokerage salesman and independent investor who, since 2010, grew an initial $30,000 investment into more than $70 million, has launched its first hedge fundâ€”Accelerated Opportunities LP Concentrated Growth Fundâ€”which 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.Â Â
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.
While Peppers is passionate about investing, he is equally committed to giving back and hopes that his Â innovative fee structureâ€”where half of both management fees (2%) and performance fees (20%) are donated to select charitiesâ€”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.
The company is working with Simon Riveles, of Riveles Wahab, LLP, the premier law firm representing hedge and private equity funds, on legal and compliance issues.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Emmet for almost 10 years,” Riveles said. “I’m excited to be closely involved with Good Soil Investment Management to bring Accelerated Opportunities’ strategy and charitable mandate to the fund community.”
Peppers has owned shares and options in Tesla since 2011 and was an early investor in Facebook. Before launching Good Soil Investment Management, Peppers was a 14-year employee at Interactive Brokers, where he was involved in institutional sales, working closely with small hedge fund portfolio managers. From this vantage point, Peppers developed his overall investment philosophy, which favors new ways of thinking over more typical investing strategies.
Peppers continues to use Interactive Brokers as his prime broker, pointing to the company’s superior technology, stability and safety.
