Taxable Income - Aquila Three Peaks High Income Fund
Research has demonstrated that high-yield corporate bonds have provided returns that are very competitive with equities, and have done so with roughly half the volatility of the equity market. Through the time-tested strategy employed in managing Aquila Three Peaks High Income Fund, we seek to further reduce potential sources of volatility.
- We avoid highly-cyclical industries in which corporations may issue high-yield debt near a cyclical peak and struggle to keep up with debt payments during a cyclical trough.
- We avoid securities with equity-like volatility characteristics such as common stock, preferreds, convertibles, payment-in-kind bonds, and zero-coupon bonds, which are frequently found in other high-yield fund portfolios.
- Through highly-detailed research, we strive to identify companies with accessible and competent management teams that have successfully employed the leverage of high-yield debt to grow the business, that have demonstrated the ability to generate free cash flow, and that are committed to improving the corporate balance sheet.
