Fund Description

The High Income Opportunities Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of high income producing instruments. High income producing instruments include those rated at the time of purchase below “BBB–” by Standard & Poor’s Rating Service (“S&P”), or below “Baa3” by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (“Moody’s”), or below a comparable rating by another nationally recognized statistical rating organization, or unrated bonds determined by the Adviser to be of comparable quality. The Fund may invest in securities rated in the lowest ratings category or in default (i.e., “junk bonds”, which are speculative). Although the Fund typically invests in high income debt securities, the Fund may also invest in investment grade debt. The Fund has the flexibility to invest in a broad-range of debt instruments, including, but not limited to, corporate and sovereign debt from U.S. and non-U.S. issuers, including those in emerging markets. The Fund may invest in debt securities of any maturity.
The Adviser examines the material risks of an investment across a spectrum of considerations including financial metrics, regional and national conditions and industry specific factors. The Adviser may also consider the most material potential Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) risks and opportunities impacting issuers, where relevant. As ESG information is just one investment consideration, ESG considerations generally are not solely determinative in any investment decision made by the Adviser. The relevance of ESG factors to the investment process varies across issuers and instrument types. The Fund seeks to invest in securities of issuers that are expected to exhibit stable to improving credit characteristics based on industry trends, company positioning, and management strategy, taking into account the potential positive impact of any restructurings or other corporate reorganizations.The strategy is primarily directed toward U.S. Dollar denominated debt rated below investment grade (i.e., “junk bonds”) and the Fund ordinarily invests at least 60% of its net assets in U.S. Dollar denominated securities. However, the Fund may purchase securities denominated in foreign currencies.The Fund may also invest in restricted securities and private placements including securities issued under Rule 144A and/or Regulation S (“Regulation S Securities”).The Fund may invest in debt-like instruments (for example, structured notes and equity baskets) that provide exposure to equity markets or indices. The Fund may invest in preferred stocks, asset-backed securities, debt instruments convertible into common stock, income trusts, and swaps. The Fund may invest in bank loans, which include floating and fixed–rate debt securities generally acquired as a participation interest in, or assignment of, a loan originated by a lender or financial institution. The Fund may invest in, enter into, or acquire participation in, delayed funding loans and revolving credit facilities.The Fund may also invest up to 20% of its net assets in equity securities. The Fund may invest in equity warrants, index warrants, covered warrants, interest rate warrants and long term options of, or relating to, international issuers that trade on an exchange or over-the-counter (“OTC”).To achieve its investment objective, the Fund uses derivatives under certain market conditions. The Fund may use derivatives as a substitute for taking a position or reducing exposure to underlying assets or for hedging currency exposure. The Fund expects that derivative instruments will include the purchase and sale of futures contracts, forward foreign exchange contracts, non-deliverable forwards, swaps, options (including options on futures and options on swaps), warrants, and structured notes. In complying with the minimum and maximum investment limitations set forth above, the Fund may include investments in derivatives with an underlying asset with economic characteristics similar to the investments included in such limitation.
