VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., April 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Spectrum Financial, a leading provider of risk-managed investment solutions, announced that it has launched a new mutual fund, the Spectrum Unconstrained Fund (SUNBX). The Spectrum family of funds offers strategies that seek to mitigate risk while capturing steady returns.
"We have introduced our new Unconstrained Fund to expand the breadth of our product offerings for actively-managed solutions designed to navigate the increasing uncertainty of the market. We are pleased with the way our tactical allocation strategies and mix of technical and fundamental analysis can perform in rapidly-changing markets," said Ralph Doudera, lead portfolio manager.
The Spectrum Unconstrained Fund employs a flexible investment approach to seek total return from capital appreciation and income from interest on debt securities and dividends on preferred stocks, while seeking to avoid downside volatility. The fund comprises a diversified portfolio of primarily fixed income ETFs and mutual funds that invest in investment-grade and non-investment grade fixed income securities, preferred stocks, as well as derivative instruments. It also employs leverage in certain market conditions.
The Unconstrained Fund is Spectrum's third mutual fund following in the footsteps of the Spectrum Low Volatility (SVARX) and Spectrum Advisors Preferred (SAPEX) Funds. Spectrum serves as sub-adviser for these funds with Advisors Preferred, an infrastructure provider for investment advisory firms seeking to create and distribute mutual funds, serving as the adviser.
"Rather than buy and hold, investors increasingly are looking for risk-managed strategies to capture potential upside return and minimize the market downside. The Spectrum Funds' quantitative approach continues to resonate with advisors and their clients to help them meet portfolio objectives," said Catherine Ayers-Rigsby, president of Advisors Preferred.
