Advisory Research Inc. Launches Advisory Research Strategic Income Fund
Jan 7 13
Advisory Research Inc. announced that it has launched a new mutual fund, the Advisory Research Strategic Income Fund. The Fund primarily seeks to generate high current income while maintaining broad diversification, and also provides investors with an opportunity to potentially obtain long-term capital appreciation. The Fund attempts to achieve its objectives by investing in income-producing securities that its Portfolio Managers determine to be undervalued. These securities include preferred stocks, convertible preferred stocks, common stocks, closed-end funds, master limited partnerships and corporate bonds. The Fund will allocate up to 80% of its assets to preferred securities and up to 20% each in the other security asset classes. The Fund's Portfolio Managers will look to invest predominantly in securities with investment grade credit ratings or quality and that trade at a spread of 2.5% or more over U.S. Treasuries. The Fund's strategy was first conceived by Advisory Research for use in two limited partnership accounts, which were launched in 2003. The limited partnership accounts' performance history and approximately $115 million in assets have been transferred to the Fund. The Federal Reserve's recent policy statement indicates that interest rates will remain low for an indefinite period of time, making the Fund an attractive option for investors. The Federal Open Market Committee revealed in its December 12, 2012 minutes that it will target a federal funds rate between 0% and 0.25% as long as the unemployment rate stays above 6.5% and inflation for the next one to two years does not exceed 2.5%. As a result, investors in the Fund can potentially accrue substantial yields with decreased risk of a rise in interest rates.
