This fund provides an attractive cash yield and stable returns, through income generation. The fund will invest in a broad range of assets including money market securities, corporate bonds, convertible bonds, preferred shares, income trusts, REIT’s, mortgages, secured real-estate-backed lending products and infrastructure.
The investment philosophy is that fixed-income-related assets will generally have a short to mid-term orientation, which will reduce capital volatility. The objective is to benefit from the yield premium available on corporate investments. Credit risk is minimized by the broad diversification in the portfolio and active management.
The investment team actively manages the asset-class exposures to achieve the Fund’s objectives based on the risk and return outlook for each asset class. Security selection is based on fundamental analysis and the managers lever the research capabilities of Fiera’s fixed income and equity teams.
