The Brandes Enhanced Income Composite seeks to achieve current income and long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in a combination of undervalued equity and fixed income securities of both U.S. and non-U.S. issuers. The composite primarily invests in United States government and agency debt, corporate debt obligations, and cash equivalents, plus equity securities of issuers whose market capitalization ranks in the top 250 companies worldwide. The typical proportion of equity to fixed income securities is expected to be 30% equity to 70% fixed income. The composite may invest in a mutual fund (Separately Managed Account Reserve Trust, or “SMART”) that is available only within the Brandes Income Strategies program. Generally SMART is predominantly invested in corporate debt, including non-dollar denominated and non-investment grade debt obligations, but may invest in other types of securities as well. The firm believes this fixed income composite to be aggressive with regard to certain risks, especially credit risk. Generally, no more than 10% of the value of the composite’s total assets, measured at the time of purchase, may be invested in securities of companies located in emerging and frontier countries throughout the world.
SMART: Brandes Separately Managed Account Reserve Trust is a registered investment company offered by Brandes.
