Unifi High Yield Fund

Objective

Unifi High Yield Fund (HYF) is a discretionary fund focusing on event arbitrage and fixed income investment opportunities in capital markets with an endeavor to generate net post tax returns of 3% p.a over the rate of inflation (CPI). The objective is to consistently generate superior compounded annual returns than conventional fixed income instruments with uncompromising emphasis on capital preservation

Strategy

Unifi HYF’s core investment strategy is to diligently find the pockets of opportunity that are constantly created by the ebb and flow of economic trends, corporate actions and human emotion. We closely monitor a wide range of asset classes and devise simple methods to continually access the market’s evolving opportunities, always mindful of probable scenarios that could surprise us. Typically, majority of the portfolio is invested in meticulously evaluated  fixed income instruments that form a bedrock providing stable yields without considerable market volatility. The balance part is opportunistically invested in event arbitrage, structured high yield credit, and very selective directional deals to enhance the overall returns to the desired level.

Event Arbitrage Opportunities emerge from corporate events like mergers, acquisition, buybacks, regulation triggered / voluntary open offers made to the public by controlling shareholders, company delisting, declaration of special dividends etc. The risk- return pay-off in most of such deals is deal-specific and has limited correlation to market cycles

Nominal and High Yield Debt  The focus is on opportunities in the AA to Investment Grade segment to optimize after tax yields while balancing risks.  Typically, all debt investments are made with Hold to Maturity (HTM) mindset but some of it could be traded opportunistically to maximize capital appreciation or minimize risk.
