To fund manager Bill Bellamy, high yield bonds are an often misunderstood and overlooked asset class. With the help of analysts David McMackin and Chuck Finley, the team seeks to identify opportunities in high yield corporate credit that generates strong current income and total return potential per unit of risk taken. As a boutique manager, the team combines fundamental credit work, relative value analysis, and a macroeconomic overlay in portfolio construction. Focus is placed on higher quality non-investment grade credit (primarily BB and B rated) although positions in CCC bonds are opportunistically added when risk/reward is believed favorable.
The primary investment objective of the TSW High Yield Bond Fund (the "Fund") is to seek high current income with a secondary focus on capital appreciation.
