Huntington launches World Income Fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Huntington Funds has launched the Huntington World Income Fund, which uses an asset allocation strategy designed to maximise current income while conserving capital for investors.

The new fund is an addition to the Huntington Funds family of mutual funds and money market offerings. Both trust shares (Ticker: HWITX) and A-shares (Ticker: HWIAX) are available.

"At Huntington Funds, we have an established team of experts with access to a world of income alternatives. As a result, the Huntington World Income Fund has the flexibility to take advantage of what we believe are the best income opportunities, wherever they may be found," says Randy Bateman (pictured), Huntington’s chief investment officer and president of the Huntington Asset Advisors (HAA). "Huntington World Income Fund managers have the flexibility to invest in individual bonds issued by governments and companies, both foreign and domestic, seeking attractive yield opportunities. Unlike other yield-focused funds, which typically turn first – and often solely – to bonds, our Fund managers recognise that bonds are just one tool that’s available."

The Fund managers also can invest in bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs), preferred stocks and more specialised securities like Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). These securities also have historically provided current income at rates that have outpaced more traditional asset classes.

Huntington Asset Advisors, Inc, the investment advisor to the Fund, primarily allocates the Huntington World Income Fund’s assets among the following major asset classes: dividend-paying equities of any market capitalisation; domestic and foreign bonds; bond exchange traded funds ("Bond ETFs"); and derivatives.

The World Income Fund is Huntington Funds’ 25th fund, which complements its family of equity, fixed-income, money market and asset allocation funds. These funds offer a broad range of diversification to enhance overall investment returns.
The investment managers of Huntington Funds include some of the most experienced people in the industry. On average the investment professionals of HAA have worked for more than 25 years in the investment business.

The World Income Fund will leverage unique expertise from five fund managers: Randy Bateman, small cap equity markets and fund strategy; Paul Attwood, emerging markets equity and fixed income selections; Chip Hendon, hedging and option strategies; Madelynn Matlock, international equity markets; and Ronald Weiner, trading and direction of fixed income component.

"Many emerging economies are committed to building infrastructure and creating new opportunities for local entrepreneurs. These same improvements encourage large domestic blue-chip companies to expand subsidiary operations internationally and engage in worldwide trade," says Attwood. "These positive changes in the world are creating potential growth opportunities for investors."
