TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Picton Mahoney Asset Management (“Picton Mahoney”) today announced the launch of the new Picton Mahoney Fortified Core Bond Fund (“Core Bond Fund”). The fund will offer four classes of units: Class A, Class F, Class I and ETF units. The ETF units will commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange today (ticker symbol PFCB). Class A, F and I units of the fund were launched on November 3, 2022 and are offered to the public as conventional mutual fund securities.
“Investors in traditional core bond funds are forced to take on higher volatility to achieve the levels of yield and return they are accustomed to,” said Philip Mesman, Head of Fixed Income, Picton Mahoney. “Coupled with the added uncertainties around inflation and the economic backdrop, the Core Bond Fund’s alternative principles provide an investment solution for fixed income investors seeking to mitigate these headwinds.”
Designed to provide investors an alternative option to traditional, constrained bond funds, the Picton Mahoney Fortified Core Bond Fund aims to generate income and capital gains through exposure to Government Bonds, Investment Grade Bonds and top credit picks from our existing long/short credit strategy.
“We believe that the way fixed income portfolios are constructed needs to evolve so that investors can generate the returns that they are looking for, without taking on additional risk,” continued Mesman. “The Core Bond Fund is designed to help income investors stay invested within their stated risk tolerance.”
