FTSL Factset Analytics Insight

FTSL offers actively managed exposure to senior loans and similar securities primarily, but not exclusively, from North America. Fund documents show a typical profile for a senior loan fund: very low interest-rate risk (from floating-rate debt) and high credit risk (from a near-total allocation to below-investment-grade debt). The fund’s investment advisor combines a fundamental credit selection process with relative value analysis and top-down macroeconomic perspectives when selecting investment opportunities. FTSL may also invest significantly in “covenant-lite” loans.
