Fund Profile

Category: Unit Trust

Investment Objective: The Fund seeks to protect capital and generate attractive returns which exceed those available from similar duration Benchmark Government Bonds. Investment Policy The Muzinich ShortDurationHighYield Fund invests primarily in high yield (sub investment grade) corporate bonds, with short maturities or short duration-to-worst. Duration-to-worst denotes how sensitive a bond is to changes in the general interest rate environment with shorter durations denoting less sensitivity. It is calculated assuming a bond will be repaid at the date most advantageous to the issuer even if that occurs before the bond's stated maturity date. These bonds, which are mainly priced in US Dollars, are issued primarily by North American companies. In order to control risk, the portfolio is well-diversified across more than 100 bond issuers and 20 industries. The Investment Manager may use derivatives to hedge investments in the Fund's securities and their related assets, markets and currencies. Derivatives are financial instruments whose value is linked to the price of an underlying asset. The Fund is actively managed and run on an entirely discretionary basis. The Fund is not managed in reference to any benchmark. Fund Currency The reference currency of the Fund is US Dollars. Currency Policy: The Manager endeavours to reduce currency risk this unit class could face from assets held in currencies different from the unit class currency. For this purpose, the Manager may utilize derivatives such as currency forward contracts which lock in a future price for buying or selling currency. Income Policy If you invest in Income Units, net income the Fund declares will be paid out to you. If you invest in Accumulation Units, net income will be reinvested in the Fund on behalf of investors. Buying and selling units You can buy and sell units in the Fund on any business day in Dublin, London and New York (a "Dealing Day"). Purchase and sale orders must be received by the Administrator no later than 4.00PM Irish time on the relevant Dealing Day.
