Leader Capital launches total return fund


Leader Capital has launched the Leader Total Return Fund, designed to meet market demand for "all weather" equity market alternative income and capital appreciation strategies.

The fund will be managed by John Lekas.

It is the second mutual fund fixed income offering alongside the Leader Capital Short Term Bond Fund.

"We have demonstrated our proficiency in selecting and managing fixed income investments for over a decade and foresee continued opportunity to provide investors attractive returns in the bond market over the coming years," says Lekas. "The Leader Total Return Fund provides a complementary strategy to our existing offerings that has been designed as an alternative to equity market investments."

The new fund allows investors to capitalise on a non-cyclical strategy with a primary focus on investments in US dollar denominated investment-grade fixed income securities. Its mandate will also permit the investment of a minority portion of the fund’s total assets in high yield securities and securities denominated in foreign currencies.

The fund manager seeks to anticipate and capitalise on events such as interest rate decreases, foreign currency appreciation, and improving credit fundamentals for particular sectors or securities.

The fund is distributed by Foreside Distribution Services.
