Investment ObjectiveThe Fund seeks to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns independent of market cycles. The intent is to provide such returns through both current income and capital appreciation. Risk-adjusted return is a concept that considers not only an investment’s return, but also the amount of potential risk involved in producing that return.
Investment StrategyThe Fund is an opportunistic fixed income fund diversified across several catalyst-driven, absolute return credit strategies.
Portfolio Positioning for the WCM Alternatives: Credit Event Fund
- The fund can function as an alternative strategy for investors seeking portfolio diversification with less reliance on fixed income market performance.
- The fund can be positioned as a substitute for a portion of the fixed income investments in a bond portfolio to address principal risk due to rising interest rates.
- Using this Fund may allow advisors and investors to potentially minimize directional exposure to a variety of financial markets, with a flexible profile that responds to changing market landscapes.
