The First Citizens El Tucuche Fixed Income Fund is a fixed income mutual fund domiciled in Trinidad and Tobago. The fund was launched in 2008 and manages an estimated $143.9 million (TTD) in assets (as at 2017-12-31).
According to the fund's prospectus, its investment objective is "to seek to generate investment returns which are superior to all TT$ registered money market mutual funds in Trinidad and Tobago, while providing for acceptable levels of liquidity and credit risk by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of debt securities, instruments and contracts which are collateralized mainly by marketable securities. Interest income 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. In selecting debt securities and contracts denominated in a currency other than Trinidad and Tobago Dollars, the Investment Manager will consider, among other factors, the effect of movements in currency exchange rates on the dollar value of such securities. For the purpose of hedging risks and enhancing returns the fund may enter into derivative transactions including but not limited to forward currency contracts. The fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in fixed income/debt securities. "
The fund is managed by First Citizens Asset Management Limited. The fund's trustee is First Citizens Trustee Services.
