Investment Approach

We aim to enhance returns by:
- diversifying the Fund among different securities issued by various borrowers
- actively managing for changes in market-wide and security-specific credit margins
- identifying and investing in relative value within the universe of credit securities
- actively managing the portfolio with respect to interest rates, swap and credit margins and managing the portfolio's sensitivity to changes in these.
Derivatives may be used in managing the Fund.
