Global Diversified Lending

Strategy Overview

Investment approach

The strategy’s investment objective is to provide stable returns mainly through income generation via a diversified portfolio of specialized private lenders. It seeks to capture the dislocation in traditional banking dynamics via investments across global geographies and multiple sectors of activity, including residential and commercial real estate lending, lower and middle market corporate lending, and other asset based lending. The team applies a rigorous, multi-phased manager due diligence process. Portfolio construction is focused on risk management and strategic liquidity management in an asset class which is typically illiquid. A long-term perspective is employed as the team seeks to identify attractive sectors.

Key Characteristics

  • Compelling risk/return proposition sought through lower duration, higher yielding investments
  • Stable source of income generation targeting a consistent track record
  • Alternative to traditional fixed income portfolios offering potentially solid risk-adjusted returns
  • Low correlations to traditional equity and bond indices
  • Short maturity loans seek to ensure significant liquidity


Please read the simplified prospectus before investing. The amount of risk associated with any particular investment depends largely on your own personal circumstances including your time horizon, liquidity needs, portfolio size, income, investment knowledge and attitude toward price fluctuations. Investors should consult their financial advisor before making a decision as to whether this fund is a suitable investment for them.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

The rate of return or mathematical table shown is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the mutual fund or returns on investment in the mutual fund. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns.
