River Canyon Total Return Bond Fund Receives 2022 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award

March 15, 2022

RCTIX named best-in-class in Multi-Sector Income Fund category for the 5-year time period ended 11/30/21 among 80- funds

LOS ANGELES – March 15, 2022 – Canyon Partners (“Canyon”), a global alternative asset manager, is pleased to announced that the River Canyon Total Return Bond Fund (ticker: RCTIX) (“the Fund”), has received a 2022 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award in the Multi-Sector Income Fund category for the 5-year time period. The awards recognize funds that have demonstrated resilience and superior performance across various market environments.

The acknowledgement follows a year of substantial growth for RCTIX. The Fund recently surpassed $1 billion in assets under management in Dec. 2021 and has consistently outperformed its benchmark, the Bloomberg US Aggregate Index, and its fund category. RCTIX’s total return credit strategy invests across the full spectrum of the $13 trillion structured credit universe and the broader fixed income market, exposing investors to a sector that has historically low correlation to traditional asset classes.

“This recognition by Refinitiv Lipper is reflective of RCTIX’s track record of strong absolute and risk-adjusted returns across a variety of macroeconomic environments,” said George Jikovski, Senior Portfolio Manager and Head of Structured Products at Canyon Partners. “Fixed income strategies are being challenged by increasing rates, higher volatility and the prospect of a long Fed tightening cycle.  The fund has maintained positive returns year-to-date and seeks to capitalize on the potentially large opportunity set that may be unfolding.”

The Refinitiv Lipper Awards honor funds and fund management firms that have excelled in providing consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers. The merit of the winners is based on objective, quantitative criteria, evaluating risk-adjusted performance over a three-, five- and 10-year period.
