Frost Investment Advisors’ Total Return Bond Fund tops USD500m


Frost Investment Advisors’ Total Return Bond Fund (FIJEX) has surpassed USD500 million in assets under management, more than doubling since its launch in 2008.


As of April 30, the fund ranked in the top 5th percentile among more than 1,000 similar funds during the three-year period and in the top 6th percentile year to date, according to Morningstar.

The Total Return Bond Fund has returned 9.8 per cent on an annualized basis through 4/30/11 since its launch on April 25, 2008, outpacing the one-year and three-year average performance for the Barclay’s Capital US Aggregate Bond Index, the Fund’s benchmark, of 5.36% and 5.81% respectively. The Total Return Bond Fund is one of 14 Frost Investment Advisors funds serving both institutional and retail clients. The entire fund family also recently celebrated a milestone, reaching USD2.5 billion at the end of April 2011 (USD2.4 billion as of March 31, 2011) in total mutual fund assets. For the same period, total assets under management for the adviser have increased to more than USD7.8 billion.

"We commend Jeffery Elswick and the entire fixed income team for reaching such an impressive milestone so quickly after we launched the Frost Total Return Bond Fund," says Tom Stringfellow (pictured), president of Frost Investment Advisors. "The success of this fund underscores the experience and strategic management by the fixed income team."

Frost Investment Advisors started offering registered mutual funds in April 2008, initially to serve the needs of institutional clients, and expanding to offer retail shares in June 2008.  The firm now provides investment advisory services to a broad range of institutional clients in addition to their work with their 14 mutual fund strategies.  The funds are available on a variety of well-known institutional and brokerage platforms, with institutional and retail shares available.
