PRESS RELEASE

Kensington Hedge Fund Invests in Alternative Lending Money Manager Productivity Media

Kensington Capital Partners is pleased to announce an investment by the Kensington Hedge Fund 1 in the Productivity Media Income Fund I.

Productivity Media provides non-correlated absolute returns for investors by lending to a highly underserviced market in film and television productions in Canada, the United States and the UK. Since starting the fund in August 2012, the Productivity Media Income Fund I has generated an average annual net return of 14% to investors.

The Productivity Media team has over 60 years of industry experience in film and television financing, deal sourcing, production, distribution, and sales. In addition to their extensive experience, Productivity Media has developed a wealth of contacts in the industry to maintain a strong pipeline of projects and focuses on small to mid-market productions in order to avoid competition.

Kensington feels that Productivity Media’s investment strategy will be a great addition to their current roster of hedge fund managers and strengthen the Kensington Hedge Fund’s overall strategy of selecting outperforming managers with complementary risk management.
