Market uncertainty continues to underscore the importance of maintaining diversified strategies on both the equity and income sides of a portfolio. That is why Vertical Capital Income Fund (VCAPX) management believes today’s investors require income approaches that have less correlation with conventional market movements.
Applying a traditional value strategy to a specialized alternative asset class – first deeds of trust and whole mortgage notes – the Fund seeks to offer income-minded investors a valuable degree of non-correlation. If downward price pressure on mortgage notes continues for the foreseeable future, the next half decade may present opportunities to buy quality whole mortgage notes from financial institutions at deep discounts.
Simple yet sophisticated, Vertical Capital Income Fund seeks to help you keep pace with your changing needs as you pursue your investment goals.
Discover how you can use VCAPX as a potential income-generating vehicle that may help improve your income outlook while tempering market volatility.
For the Vertical Capital Income Fund, there is a risk that issuers and counterparties will not make payments on securities and other investments held by the Fund, resulting in losses to the Fund. In general, the price of a fixed-income security falls when interest rates rise. A specific security can perform differently from the market as a whole for reasons related to the issuer, such as an individual’s economic situation, and the Fund’s net asset value may be more volatile because it invests in notes of individuals. Securities may be subject to prepayment risk because issuers are typically able to prepay principal. The Fund will not invest in real estate directly, but, because the Fund will invest the majority of its assets in securities secured by real estate, its portfolio will be significantly impacted by the performance of the real estate market and may experience more volatility and be exposed to greater risk than a more diversified portfolio. Quarterly repurchases by the Fund of its shares typically will be funded from available cash or sales of portfolio securities. The sale of securities to fund repurchases could reduce the market price of those securities, which in turn would reduce the Fund’s net asset value.
