LF Total Return Bond Fund

NAV - A 03/14/2019 132.2888
NAV - D   03/14/2019   121.6972

Fund Strategy
LF Total Return Bond Fund is an open-ended fund incorporated in Luxembourg.

The Fund’s objective is primarily the preservation of capital, with an aim to generate an optimal risk adjusted return by maximizing capital appreciation while maintaining low/stable volatility. The Fund manager, following a prudent investment approach, will look at opportunities across the global fixed income universe, with a focus on investment grade credit.

The bulk of the holdings will be comprised of strategic positions in bonds, selected based on strong credit metrics, following extensive fundamental analysis.

The Fund will also have tactical positions which aim to profit from short to medium-term market opportunities as they arise. This gives the Fund manager the opportunity to benefit from market mispricing, new issue premiums, technical momentum, negative basis trades and other pricing anomalies.

Up to 100% of NAV could be allocated to investment grade bonds with an opportunistic allocation to below investment grade bonds of up to 20% only.

Manager's Perspective
Investors seeking to extensively diversify their portfolio into a less volatile asset class and across names, geographies and sectors should seek the opportunity to invest in the LF Total Return Bond Fund.

The strategy will be focused on value-driven credit investments complying with stringent risk management policies.

The Fund is suitable for investors who want to enhance their risk-adjusted return, and have a global credit exposure with a focus on Europe, the United States, the Middle East and North Africa.
