Semper Capital Management’s Semper MBS Total Return Fund has surpassed USD1 billion AUM, an increase of over USD500 million over a ten-month period, just a few weeks after the fourth anniversary of its launch.
“Strengthening real estate credit fundamentals, the structure of the market, and strong technical factors continue to work together to create an attractive source of risk-adjusted return in the fixed income market,” says Greg Parsons, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Investment Committee. “As a great diversifier within a larger portfolio, we believe opportunities within the non-agency mortgage sector are particularly well-suited for this market. The value in the sector, combined with our exceptional team of investment professionals, makes this a very exciting time for the firm.”
Launched on July 22, 2013, the 5-Star Overall Morningstar Rated Semper MBS Total Return Fund (SEMMX, SEMPX; out of 262 non-traditional bond funds as of 8/31/17) is available for purchase both directly and on most major broker-dealer platforms. The Fund invests primarily in mortgage-backed securities (MBS) including residential MBS (RMBS) and commercial MBS (CMBS) and seeks to provide a high level of risk-adjusted current income and capital appreciation.
