Zimmerman Partners' to Form Strategic Income Fund

HONG KONG -- Zimmerman Partners' today announced they plan to form a Strategic Income Fund.

Zimmerman Partners' Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Walter Lee said: "The fund will seek to provide investors income and total return opportunities through a broadly diversified portfolio of US and foreign fixed income securities. Employing a benchmark-unconstrained approach, the Fund's portfolio managers have flexibility to invest in their best ideas across all fixed income sectors, helping investors navigate today's increasingly complex economic environment".

Zimmerman Partners' Chief Investment Officer, Mr. Hugh Chen said: "Today's fixed income investment landscape is defined by uncertainty surrounding interest rates, inflation and fiscal imbalance. This makes credit selection more important than ever, and creates new opportunities. To help investors achieve potentially stronger total returns in this environment, the Strategic Income Fund can provide access to a broad set of investment options across global fixed income markets irrespective of country, currency, quality or duration".

Zimmerman Partners' Chief Operations Officer, Mr. Frank Peters also stated, "The Strategic Income Fund seeks to uncover global investment opportunities through a balanced approach to current yield and total return potential without being tethered to a benchmark or a style box. The portfolio managers have more flexibility to adjust sector allocations to provide attractive return potential and better manage overall portfolio risk".
