Key Features

About the Fund

The investment objective of the Fund is to seek high current income and capital appreciation primarily through investment in global fixed income securities rated below investment grade. The Fund also seeks global diversification by targeting North American, European and emerging markets high yield corporate issuers.

The Investment Manager may seek to achieve the Fund's objective through investment of up to 100% of the Fund's assets in one or more managed investment schemes, managed by the Investment Manager or an affiliate of the Investment Manager, that have the same or similar investment objectives as the Fund.


How we invest your money

The Investment Manager seeks to generate income and investment growth over the long-term by:

  • Providing global exposure to corporate issuers primarily rated below investment-grade as well as bank loans across North America, Europe and emerging markets.
  • Capitalizing on an expanding global opportunity set with potential to profit from market inefficiencies and volatility between regions.
  • Holding a high-conviction concentrated portfolio that flexibly takes meaningful over- and underweights to individual credits, regions, industries and ratings classes, as against the benchmark.

The Fund is actively managed based on proprietary bottom-up, fundamental analysis that adapts to and seeks to exploit changing market conditions and identifies improving issuers using factors such as credit statistics, free cash flow generation, strategic values of a company, security structure, and quality of management team. Our bottom-up approach is augmented by a top-down overlay.
