Hi Nate,

Your explanation works for me. However how long do we wait for this to turnaround. Would a proxy be to expect losses for as long as the market is down or trading sideways with volitility? I'd like to be in for the long term but does that mean giving them the benefit of the doubt over a few quarters or a couple of years?

Also maybe this had been asked and answered but could these losses eat into the cash for the dividend? Or are these non-cash loses, kind of like mark to market devaluation of assets?

Finally do we know what type of assets they are managing or the profile of the fund? Is it a equity or fixed income vehicle or something like a hedge fund that could get in trouble with leverage and derivatives?

Sorry if I'm all over the place but thanks for trying to help us learn more about this company.
