Flexible Income Fund
The Fund’s investment objective is to seek long-term total return while striving to generate current income.
The Fund seeks current income and capital appreciation by actively allocating across fixed income sectors using duration management based on the manager’s view of, among other things, future interest rates and market conditions. The Advisor retains broad discretion to modify the Fund’s duration within a wide range, including the discretion to construct a portfolio of investments for the Fund with a negative duration.
