Mesirow Financial Enhanced Core Plus Fund


Strategy Overview


The Mesirow Financial Enhanced Core Plus Fund (the “Enhanced Core Plus Fund” or the “Fund”) seeks to maximize total return through capital appreciation and current income consistent with preservation of capital.

Process Highlights

  • Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in fixed income securities and other financial instruments with economic characteristics similar to such securities.
  • The Fund utilizes several asset classes (currency overlay, bank loans, convertibles, et al) that broaden the investable universe within the strict discipline of risk management.
  • The Fund may allocate up to 15% of net assets in foreign exchange transactions and derivative instruments it believes will generate consistent alpha in all market conditions. The Fund will allocate capital between fundamental and technical currency strategies and will aim to profit from short- and medium-term moves in various markets’ currency pairs.
  • The Fund may also invest in high yield instruments, where it would target those that have individual yield premiums which appear to be favorable and are viewed as having a comparable or lower probability of default and/or loss risk.
  • Benchmark is the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Index.
