Investment Strategies

  • Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest substantially all of its assets in income producing securities (including below investment grade securities or “junk bonds”) with a focus on U.S. corporate bonds, convertible securities, foreign debt instruments, including those in emerging markets and related foreign currency transactions, and U.S. government securities. Below investment grade fixed-income securities are rated below investment grade quality (i.e. none of the three major ratings agencies (Moody’s Investors Service, Inc., Fitch Investors Services, Inc. or Standard and Poor’s Ratings Group, have rated the securities in one of its top four rating categories) or, if the security is unrated, are determined by the Portfolio Manager to be of comparable quality.
  • The Fund may invest in preferred stocks.
  • The Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in dividend paying common stocks.
  • The Portfolio Manager may shift the Fund’s assets among various types of income-producing securities based upon changing market conditions.  The Portfolio Manager performs its own extensive credit analyses to determine the creditworthiness and potential for capital appreciation of a security.
