Cabana Black

Cabana Black is a private hedge fund offering from Cabana Black, LLC that entered the market in 2020. While Cabana’s signature Target Drawdown investment approach concentrates primarily on loss prevention, Cabana Black emphasizes return maximization by utilizing portfolio leverage through borrowed capital. On September 17, 2020, Cabana released a series of Target Drawdown ETFs, which are comprised of what we believe is an optimal mix of broad asset-class ETFs (an ETF of ETFs). Beginning November 1, 2020 Cabana Black is typically 100% invested in TDSC (the Target Drawdown 10 ETF). There are times in the market cycle when Cabana Black may not be invested in TDSC. This may be the result of certain market conditions or other perceived circumstances where another strategy could be advantageous. More information on when this occurs can be directed to the Cabana team at

Performance results, including drawdown and asset allocation, for specific investors may vary based upon differences in associated costs, management fees, and incentive or performance fees, timing of their investment, and asset availability during the reporting period. Additionally, investors in the Fund will incur expenses which may include, but are not limited to, administrator’s fees and expenses, accounting and tax preparation expenses, auditing expenses, all investment expenses, legal fees, and ongoing administrative expenses. Due to numerous variables, including but not limited to the ultimate size of the Fund, the timing of investments, unknown future expenses, timing of costs and expenses, and the number of investors in the Fund, Cabana is unable to determine a reasonable estimate of such costs and expenses. All such costs and expenses will lower the performance of the Fund.
