SANTA FE, NM — January 16, 2019 — Thornburg Investment Management (“Thornburg”), a global investment firm with $41 billion in assets under management,1 today announced the launch of Thornburg Strategic Income Fund (the “Fund”), a UCITS fund domiciled in Dublin, Ireland.
The Fund is based on a broadly flexible, income-oriented portfolio that launched in 2007 and is currently available to investors through a U.S. mutual fund structure.
“For over 30 years and through numerous economic cycles, Thornburg has been a recognized leader in fixed income investing,” said Jason Brady, president and CEO at Thornburg and co-portfolio manager of the Fund. “This Fund expands upon our legacy of providing investors with a stable source of competitive return, and a disciplined and balanced allocation in changing market environments.”
The Fund pursues a high level of current income in varied macroeconomic conditions and consistent, long-term returns. Its diversified portfolio is constructed with income- producing, relative-value investments that exhibit strong underlying credit fundamentals. Jason Brady, Lon Erickson, Christian Hoffmann, and Jeff Klingelhofer are co-portfolio managers of the Fund and are supported by Thornburg’s 40-person investment team.
“Demand for diversified, relative value, fixed income portfolios continues to grow among global investors. The launch of Thornburg Strategic Income Fund signals our commitment to providing our international partners access to Thornburg’s decades of fixed income experience,” said Carter Sims, managing director and head of global distribution at Thornburg.
The Fund is part of a suite of eight fixed income and equity strategies on Thornburg’s UCITS platform. Investors can access the Fund through a range of share classes.
