Hancock Horizon Funds launches diversified income fund


Hancock Holding Company has launched the Hancock Horizon Diversified Income Fund as a new addition to the company’s growing USD1.5bn family of investment funds.

The fund seeks to generate steady income from a combination of financial investments.

"The launch of the new Hancock Horizon Diversified Income Fund marks another important milestone in the continued growth of our family of investment funds, and we believe the fund has strong potential to generate income during the current challenging interest rate environment," says Hancock Horizon Funds senior vice president and chief investment strategist John Portwood. "This will be an alternative for investors who have seen diminishing returns from traditional income-producing investment products as interest rates have declined."

The new fund will invest in a mix of master limited partnerships (MLPs), dividend paying stocks, real estate investment trusts (REITs), preferred stock, and high yield bonds.

To lead the fund, the Hancock Horizon Funds has tapped 20-year investment industry veteran Greg Hodlewsky. 

"We actively manage all of our funds, and the Diversified Income Fund will be no different," says Hodlewsky. "We will move in concert with changes in the market and focus on the areas of the market where the income is greatest to generate the best results possible."

While there are similar type funds available, Hodlewsky says the number of those funds is small – perhaps 20-50 – compared to the number of generic stock funds available, such as large cap stock funds that may number 1,500 or more.

Hancock Holding Company is the parent company of Hancock Bank and Whitney Bank.  The investment management team for Hancock and Whitney banks comprises 18 members responsible for managing USD5.4bn in assets under management.
