Liquid Debt strategy differentiators

  • Diversified, efficient exposure to U.S. commercial real estate debt and preferred securities issued by Real Estate Investment Trusts.

The opportunity for investors

  • CMBS offers potential for yield enhancement and diversification in an alternative credit exposure compared to corporate bonds.

  • May provide potential for attractive risk-adjusted returns available over a variety of market environments.

  • Complement to private debt strategies offerings: public market liquidity, efficient and timely capital deployment, and diversification.

Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.

Real estate investment options, such as commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), are subject to risks associated with credit, liquidity, interest rate fluctuation, adverse general and local economic conditions, and decreases in real estate values and occupancy rates.

Fixed-income investment options that invest in mortgage securities, such as commercial mortgage-backed securities, are subject to increased risk due to real estate exposure and carry greater risk compared to other securities in times of market stress.
