TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- (TSX:SSF.UN) Investors and investment advisors are invited to listen to an update on the US Senior Loan Market, hosted by Larry Holzenthaler of Symphony Asset Management ("Symphony"). Investors may listen to the recording of the update call on Brompton's website at www.bromptongroup.com/symphony. The Fund is available for purchase on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol SSF.UN.
Symphony Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund (the "Fund") invests primarily in floating-rate Senior Loans, which are the most senior corporate obligations of a borrower, and are secured by the borrower's assets. As a result, Senior Loans have a first-priority secured claim on repayment ahead of bonds and equity. Senior Loans also feature floating rate interest payments which may help investors avoid potential negative performance of fixed-rate bonds in periods of rising interest rates.
The Fund has a current distribution target of $0.70 per annum (approximately 7.2% of the April 30, 2014 closing price). The Fund is designed to pay tax-efficient Return of Capital distributions until October 2016. At the highest personal income tax rate in Ontario (49.53%), an investor would need to earn regular interest income at a rate of 10.8% per annum to realize the same after-tax cash flows.
Symphony Asset Management LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nuveen Investments, Inc., manages approximately US$12.2 billion focused on senior loans, with approximately US$16.3 billion assets under management as at March 31, 2014. Funds sub-advised by Symphony have achieved top three-, five- and ten-year performance rankings in the Loan Participation Fund category by Lipper as at March 31, 2014.
