Sierra Tactical Core Income Fund (SSIRX) Renamed
The Fund Has Been Renamed to Denote it's Mandate and Approach
Santa Monica, CA (May 14, 2018) – The Sierra Group of Companies has renamed its Strategic Income Fund to better reflect the fund’s tactical approach to conservative investing. Now known as the Sierra Tactical Core Income Fund (SSIRX), the fund will continue to be managed as it has been since its inception.
“Our focus at Sierra has always been on protecting against downside risk and on muting volatility,” said David Wright, co-founder and managing director at Sierra. “We use a tactical approach that dynamically allocates to a multitude of asset classes. By renaming this fund, we make it clear to our investors and potential investors that our approach is based on constant evaluation of the opportunities available to us in different asset classes. Our focus remains on providing investors with investment solutions that may allow them to reach their conservative goals.”
The fund utilizes an approach that is globally diversified, tactical, and focused on managing volatility and limiting the downside risk of the overall portfolio, while producing a satisfying return over the course of each market cycle. $10,000 invested in SSIRX at inception in 2011 would be worth $13,139.55, an average annual return of 4.36% as of March 31, 2018, for the Class R shares, compared to 2.21% for the Barclays Aggregate Bond Index.
The managers utilize a proprietary trailing stop-loss approach, allowing the fund to function as a total low-volatility income solution. Each allocation decision must serve one or both of the fund’s two goals: to enhance total return and/or to reduce the overall volatility and downside risk of the portfolio.
Mutual Funds involve risk including possible loss of principal.
The inception date of the Sierra Tactical All Asset Fund is December 27, 2011.
