The key tenet of successful long-term portfolio performance is the inclusion of high- quality, non-correlated assets. Fixed income investments that complement core bond portfolios in both terms of attractive yield and diversification have become progressively difficult to identify.
Accounts Receivables Financing, commonly referred to as Factoring, is a key component of trade finance as has existed in developed economies for centuries. Simply stated, factoring allows a company to improve its cash flow cycle through the sale of its accounts receivables to an outside party. By converting account receivables into cash, a company increases both its productivity and financial health. The lifeblood of a small-to-medium sized company is its cash flow and the Fund offers investors an opportunity to achieve an attractive income stream by participating in this unique sector.
The Fund is advised by Liquid Capital Corporation, a factoring specialist founded in 1999 by its three principals whose notable factoring expertise is the result of individual trade finance careers spanning 30+ years.
