Fund Description

The ANSA US$ Income Fund is a fixed income mutual fund domiciled in Trinidad and Tobago. The fund was launched in 2010 and manages an estimated $11.0 million (USD) in assets (as at 2017-09-30).

According to the fund's prospectus, its investment objective is "to seek to generate investment returns which are superior to all US$ income mutual funds registered in Trinidad and Tobago, while providing for acceptable levels of liquidity and credit risk by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of debt securities, equities, instruments and contracts which are backed mainly by marketable securities. Interest income, capital gain and preservation of capital will be important, though not the only, investment considerations for the fund. The fund may invest in securities and contracts, including sovereign debt, issued in countries other than Trinidad and Tobago, which are expected to provide high income yield and are not expected to cause deterioration in capital values. The fund will focus on building and maintaining a portfolio of debt instruments, which are secured or backed by marketable securities. The fund aims to generate an attractive level of revenue by investing mainly in both government and non-government bonds denominated in US$. In selecting debt securities and contracts denominated in currencies other than US$, the Investment Manager will consider, among other factors, the effect of movements in currency exchange rates on the value of such securities. "

The fund is managed by ANSA Merchant Bank Limited. The fund's trustee is First Citizens Trustee Services.
