Income Strategy

An Unconventional Approach to Income

Why our Income Strategy?

Align Interests: We are the largest individual investors in the strategy, aligning our interests with those of our investors.

Focus on Value: By targeting high-yielding securities at significant discounts to their intrinsic values, we attempt to generate capital appreciation on top of high current income.

Migrate to Opportunity: The Strategy can own almost any type of security across the globe, allowing us to invest tactically in the asset classes we think are likely to generate the best risk-adjusted returns. Income Strategy can own high-yield corporate debt, income-paying common stock, preferred shares, convertible securities, REITs, business development companies, MLPs and more.

Why Now?

Enhance Income: After years of low yields for traditional income investments, many investors are looking to enhance their portfolio with higher yields.

Manage Duration: Investors worry about their bond portfolios in a rising-rate environment. A flexible, actively managed portfolio of income-paying securities may exhibit less duration risk than traditional fixed-income securities.

Mitigate Volatility: Nontraditional income sources may offer the opportunity for higher yields and the potential for higher long-term capital appreciation. When actively managed in a single portfolio, alternative income sources’ potential for lower correlations may mitigate excessive volatility.

Stay Active: As an active manager, we have the ability to take advantage of changing market conditions and exercise our patient, long-term approach.
