Daiwa Holdings Launches Credit Strategies Fund Daiwa Holdings Seeks to Capitalize on Opportunities Across Major Corporate Credit Sectors HK (I- Newswire) July 18, 2012 - Daiwa Holdings announced today the launch of the Daiwa Holdings Credit Strategies Fund. The Fund will seek to capitalize on compelling investment opportunities in today's markets by allocating capital across various corporate credit asset classes. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek a total return comprised of income and capital appreciation. "Given the weak economic landscape and expectations for a relatively long period of muted economic activity, we believe it is prudent for investors to allocate capital to corporate credit investments that benefit from capital structure seniority, as well as current income," said Gregg Sun, Managing Director and Global Head of Corporate Credit at Daiwa Holdings. "In this volatile environment, we believe active management and a flexible mandate should enable us to achieve strong risk adjusted returns, benefitting from the current high credit spread environment." One key advantage of the Daiwa Holdings Credit Strategies Fund is its "unconstrained" investment approach. Rather than managing the Fund against a traditional fixed income benchmark, the portfolio management team will dynamically allocate capital to the most attractive segments of corporate credit, including investment grade, high yield and convertible bonds, as well as bank loans. In today's volatile market, asset selection is extremely critical and the Fund's mandate provides investors with an actively managed approach to capitalize on current opportunities. "Our goal is to help investors capitalize on current and future outstanding opportunities," said Sun. "In this turbulent market and in the credit cycles to come, the Daiwa Holdings Credit Strategies Fund can serve as a discerning eye for investors seeking attractive income and capital appreciation potential through a carefully selected spectrum of corporate credit securities." Daiwa Holdings expects a long- term recovery cycle in the credit markets and consequently a multi- year investment opportunity. The Credit Strategies Fund will concentrate on the team's best ideas across various segments of corporate credit in a diverse, unlevered portfolio of 75+ positions in a range of creditrelated instruments. The Daiwa Holdings Credit Strategies Fund is a non- diversified, closed- end interval fund that continuously offers its shares and requires a minimum investment of $250,000. Because the credit market includes securities that at times can be illiquid, the Fund has restrictions on the ability to redeem shares in order to limit the forced sale of securities and preserve investors' returns. To provide liquidity to shareholders, the Fund will make quarterly offers to repurchase between five percent and 25 percent of its outstanding shares at net asset value. The Fund also offers daily purchases to enable investors to increase their positions gradually, dollar cost averaging into the Fund over time.
