NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pacific Funds expanded its lineup of fixed-income products recently with the launch of Pacific Funds Ultra Short Income designed to seek income, preserve capital and protect against interest-rate volatility.
Pacific Funds Ultra Short Income is actively managed by Pacific Asset Management (PAM), the sub-advisor for Pacific Funds’ five other fixed-income funds.
“Given the uncertain interest-rate environment, ultra-short funds have become an increasingly popular strategy for investors,” said Dominic Nolan, senior managing director for Pacific Asset Management. “Our new Pacific Funds ultra-short product seeks to provide more yield than typical money-market funds in exchange for a small amount of incremental risk. We believe our experience and expertise in capturing corporate credit opportunities will add value.”
The new fund falls under Morningstar’s ultra-short bond category, which in 2018 experienced a 32% increase in net inflows over the prior year1.
“We added the Pacific Funds Ultra Short Income fund to meet our clients’ needs,” said Kevin Byrne, Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Global Asset Management, which oversees product development and distribution of Pacific Funds. “This ultra-short offering is a timely complement to our existing family of fixed-income funds.”
Pacific Funds has over $7 billion of assets under management.
