Senior Loan Market Update – January 2022
The Symphony Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund (the “Fund”) invests primarily in Floating Rate Senior Loans, which are a borrower’s most important corporate obligations and are secured by the assets of the borrower. Senior Loans have a first priority secured claim on repayment, ahead of bonds and stocks. Senior Loans offer a high level of income and low interest rate risk compared to traditional fixed income asset classes. Symphony believes credit fundamentals for Senior Loans remain strong as the U.S. economy continues to recover and corporate default rates are expected to remain low.
The Fund offers a distribution of $0.48 per unit per annum on its Class A shares, paid monthly, representing a cash distribution rate of 6.1% per annum based on the closing price of the TSX on the 14th January 2022. The Fund can be purchased on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol SSF.UN.
