Calamos launches two new liquid alt mutual funds


Calamos Investments has launched two new mutual funds, the Calamos Global Convertible Fund and the Calamos Hedged Equity Income Fund as of 31 December, 2014.

"These new funds are a logical extension of our product suite, leveraging the core competencies of the firm. We have managed global convertible strategies for institutional clients for 20 years, and have managed US convertibles for more than 35 years. Additionally, we were an early leader in the liquid alternatives space launching one of the first liquid alternatives mutual funds in the early 1990s," says John Calamos, Sr, Chief Executive Officer and Global Co-Chief Investment Officer.

The Calamos Global Convertible Fund blends global investment themes and fundamental research, providing broadly diversified exposure to the global convertible bond universe. The fund seeks to provide upside participation in equity markets with less exposure to downside than an equity-only portfolio over a full market cycle. The fund can also serve a role within a fixed income allocation, as convertibles have historically performed well during periods of rising interest rates and inflation.

The Calamos Hedged Equity Income Fund continues the firm's history of providing liquid alternative strategies, including covered call writing. The Calamos Hedged Equity Income Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of stocks and sells options with the aim of generating income while participating in equity market upside with lower volatility over the long term.
