All investments involve risk and may lose value. This podcast is for general information purposes only and is not intended to be and should not be relied on for investment advice.
The portfolio manager’s views and opinions expressed in this podcast are as of June 23, 2021. Such views are subject to change without notice and may differ from others in the firm, or the firm as a whole. The portfolio manager’s comments may include estimated and/or forecasted views, which are believed to be based on reasonable assumptions within the bounds of current and historical information. However, there is no guarantee that any estimates, forecasts or views will be realized. Any discussion or view on an asset class/segment, industry/sector and/or investment type are not investment recommendations, should not be assumed to be profitable, and are subject to change without notice. In the event of new information or changed circumstances, H&W reserves the right to change its investment perspective and outlook and has no obligation to provide revised assessments and/or opinions.
The portfolio manager’s views on the high yield market should not be construed as the high yield strategy’s expected performance. There is no guarantee of the future performance of the high yield market or the high yield strategy. H&W does not provide any assurance that the high yield strategy’s objectives and goals will be achieved. Past performance is not an indicator of future results.
Investing in high yield securities is subject to certain risks, including market, credit, liquidity, issuer, interest-rate, inflation, and derivatives risks. Lower-rated and non-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investing in smaller and/or newer companies involves greater risks than those associated with investing in larger companies, such as business risk, significant stock price fluctuations and illiquidity.
Market Disruption: The global coronavirus pandemic has caused and continues to cause disruption in the global economy, unprecedented business and travel disruption and extreme fluctuations in global capital and financial markets. H&W is unable to predict the consequences of the upheaval caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which, depending on the severity and the length of the outbreak, has the potential to negatively impact the firm’s investment strategies and reduce available investment opportunities.
