The Loomis Sayles Strategic Income Fund, a sub-fund of Natixis Investment Funds UK, aims to provide high income and increased investment value over a long term horizon. It will invest primarily in income-producing securities and will focus on global corporate, convertible and government bonds.
Dan Fuss, portfolio manager and vice chairman of Loomis, Sayles and Company, said: “In an environment like this, investing in a fund that has the ability to sift through asset classes and pick specific bonds of companies with strong market share and growth potential is absolutely essential.
“The beauty of our flexibility is we can shorten duration, when necessary, and we have already positioned ourselves for a protracted rising rate environment.”
Fuss will manage the fund alongside Elaine Stokes and Matt Eagan.
