Fund Description
The Fund has the potential to generate competitive total return from both income and capital appreciation, as well as to provide a hedge against rising interest rates. The Fund offers investors the opportunity to outsource the complexity of allocating between two rapidly converging non-investment-grade credit sectors high yield corporate bonds and floating rate bank loans to a single manager with deep expertise in both asset classes and longstanding experience managing multi-sector portfolios. The expanded opportunity set created by combining these asset classes may provide enhanced diversification benefits due to low correlation to core fixed income. The Fund also has the ability to invest up to 100% of its assets in U.S. Treasuries when the managers determine that market conditions warrant a move away from credit sectors.
