Neilson Capital to Form Strategic Income Fund
HONG KONG -- Neilson Capital today announced they plan to form a Strategic Income Fund.
May 9, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Neilson Capital's Director of Risk and Compliance, Mr. Francis Knight said: "The fund will seek to provide investors income and total return opportunities through a broadly diversified portfolio of US and foreign fixed income securities. Employing a benchmark-unconstrained approach, the Fund's portfolio managers have flexibility to invest in their best ideas across all fixed income sectors, helping investors navigate today's increasingly complex economic environment".
Neilson Capital's Director of Foreign Exchange, Mr. Craig Manning said: "Today's fixed income investment landscape is defined by uncertainty surrounding interest rates, inflation and fiscal imbalance. This makes credit selection more important than ever, and creates new opportunities. To help investors achieve potentially stronger total returns in this environment, the Strategic Income Fund can provide access to a broad set of investment options across global fixed income markets irrespective of country, currency, quality or duration".
Neilson Capital's Director of Risk and Compliance, Mr. Francis Knight also stated, "The Strategic Income Fund seeks to uncover global investment opportunities through a balanced approach to current yield and total return potential without being tethered to a benchmark or a style box. The portfolio managers have more flexibility to adjust sector allocations to provide attractive return potential and better manage overall portfolio risk".
Neilson Capital was founded by our 4 Senior Directors; Brothers Richard Neilson (Managing Director) and Arthur Neilson (Director of Operations and Finance), together with Michael Tsang (Director and Head of Treasury) and Francis Knight (Director of Risk and Compliance).
Neilson Capital opened in January of 1997 in Hong Kong with nearly 100 years of operational investment experience within our four founding fathers alone and the company has blossomed ever since. Their experience alone affords a deep expertise and previously proven ability and know-how in providing high-class offshore wealth management services to private retail investors, high-net-worth individuals and families. This was an invaluable foundation on which the company has been built on and continued to flourish to this day.
After the economic collapse in late 2008 we had to reassess our business model despite not being directly affected as unlike many of our competitors we had no exposure to sub-prime investments. We did however start actively seeking private retail investors who wanted the same levels of service, solid returns and access to otherwise traditionally been the preserve of institutions, sovereign wealth funds and family trust. At this time we also changed the name of our firm from Neilson, Neilson, Tsang and Knight & Company to Neilson Capital.
As part of our expansion, we have added branch offices in Shanghai (2009), Taipei (2010) and Tokyo (2013) following acquisitions of regional firms with an established footprint in these important markets.
From this proactive approach, Neilson Capital have steadily grown our private retail investor division with it now accounting for nearly 60% of our overall business and growing. The majority of this growth has been down to word-of-mouth business which is a fact that we are very proud of and testament to the quality of service we provide each and every one of our clients no matter who they are.
