Absolute return fixed income strategy earns top honors from HFMWeek
Hackensack, NJ (October 31, 2016) –On the heels of three award nominations from HFMWeek’s US Hedge Fund Performance Awards for 2016, the Income Performance Strategy from Bramshill Investments was named the winner in the Specialist category. The other two nominations were in the categories of Credit under $1 billion and Fixed Income under $1 billion.
Bramshill’s Income Performance Strategy was spun out of an absolute return fixed income strategy managed by Bramshill Founder and CIO Art DeGaetano while at GLG Partners and has a track-record dating back to 2009. Since 2009, the Strategy has delivered an annualized return of 8.57% and a cumulative total return of 89.11%. Since the founding of Bramshill, the Income Performance Strategy has averaged a 5.5% annual distribution yield with an investment grade portfolio and an average duration of 5.1 years.
Bramshill seeks to harness the best risk-reward opportunities within five primary asset classes in fixed income including investment grade and high-yield bonds, preferred stocks, municipal bonds and U.S. Treasuries. Bramshill has averaged less than 20% exposure to high yield and does not use leverage or derivatives. This approach has led to the recognition from HFMWeek and from investors as the Firm’s AUM has grown from $190 million at inception to $408 million as of 9/30/2016. Investors can access the strategy in both separately managed account and mutual fund vehicles.
“Our unique strategy that opportunistically allocates across credit, preferreds, and municipals gives Bramshill a competitive advantage. We invest with conviction and focus on risk management,” said Art DeGaetano, who also referenced the camaraderie and dedication of the portfolio and executive teams at the firm stating, “We have all known each other and worked hard together for many years. The fluid team effort at Bramshill has resulted in our strong performance which is being recognized by this HFM Award.”
Bramshill is an employee-owned firm that is committed to alpha generation: the team maintains a focused portfolio of under 50 securities and plans to cap strategy assets around $2B.
