Deliver superior current income versus traditional equity income strategies with reduced volatility and lower levels of interest rate risk compared to a debt strategy.
This strategy is designed to deliver a superior risk-adjusted yield while reducing volatility over a full market cycle. The strategy seeks to achieve this objective by investing in a broad basket of yield-producing assets including common and preferred equities, exchange traded debt, and ETFs/ETNs. This diversity allows us to produce a higher yield than a more traditional income product while still providing volatility reduction through active asset allocation model-based decision making. The strategy does not invest in junk bonds or distressed debt securities.
