Scout Investments launches low duration bond fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Scout Investments has expanded its mutual fund line-up with the launch of the Scout Low Duration Bond Fund.



With an emphasis on capital preservation, the fund is designed to yield more than money market funds and to be less volatile than longer-term bond funds.

“The fund offers investors the potential for an attractive yield with relatively low credit risk and provides a strategy to help preserve capital during periods of rising interest rates,” says Mark Egan, the fund’s lead portfolio manager and managing director at Reams Asset Management, a division of Scout Investments. “We believe the fund will allow investors to preserve past gains and earn a competitive rate of return while waiting for better opportunities in the future.”

Through a disciplined investment process that emphasises relative value, the fund’s management seeks to maximise risk-adjusted total return, minimize volatility, and preserve capital.

The fund will be well diversified and consist of high-quality short-term securities with an average fund duration of generally one to three years. It also has the flexibility to invest in high yield securities when it is attractive to do so.

The launch of the Scout Low Duration Bond Fund follows the introduction of three Scout fixed income funds last year, all managed by Reams’ portfolio management team.
