CHICAGO, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IRON Funds proudly announces the 10-year anniversary of its IRON Strategic Income Fund (IFUNX). Since its 2006 inception, IFUNX has been a pioneering fund in the liquid alternative fixed income space. The Fund's investment strategy is based on IRON's unconstrained investment approach and seeks to provide added value to an investor who is looking for a fixed income portfolio that is non-correlated to the U.S. aggregate bond index (core fixed income assets).
IFUNX aims to maximize total return by effectively maintaining an optimal exposure to credit and interest rates. The Fund focuses on striving to mitigate downside risk while maximizing long-term total return.
Effective risk management is the cornerstone of IRON's investment process, explains Aaron Izenstark, Co-Founder and CIO. "Through the last decade's financial crises, IRON's hedging and unconstrained approach allowed the team to navigate each period, showing that the Fund can be an effective diversifier in any market environment. It's during tough times that investors want a less traumatic, more consistent experience and we're pleased IFUNX has performed that function so well." Izenstark adds, "If you want something different, you have to do something different; much like our nontraditional bond strategy."
"As for the next decade and beyond, IRON's philosophy is the same: expect change and volatility. In order to navigate the fixed income markets effectively going forward you will need to have investments that can protect you from a rise in interest rates, or the volatility of a potential credit shock. IFUNX has fulfilled our expectations over the past decade and we're looking forward to the next decade and beyond," Izenstark states.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. There can be no assurance that the fund will achieve its objective. No investment strategy, including a total return strategy, can ensure a profit or protect against loss. Additionally, investing in a total return strategy may result in under-performance during a bull market. Fixed income investments are affected by a number of risks, including fluctuation in interest rates, credit risk, and prepayment risk. In general, as prevailing interest rates rise, fixed income securities prices will fall. The value of derivatives may rise or fall more rapidly than other investments. For some derivatives, it is possible to lose more than the amount invested in the derivative. It is possible that the hedge may not succeed.
