Interval Funds are Having Their Moment
March 21, 2017 | Barron’s
Interval funds are proliferating as investors reach for yield, but the products have serious drawbacks, according to Morningstar.
PIMCO last month launched an interval fund—PIMCO Flexible Credit Income—and registered to raise $1 billion in assets.
In all, there are some 20 interval funds in registration, nearly as many as are currently live.
Our firm has been using Blue Vault from the first year it was available.
We have found it to be a valuable tool to verify what wholesalers tell us and to dig deep into how the reported investments are really performing.
We appreciate that Blue Vault has expanded its services from initially covering REIT's to now also including BDC's.
Our clients also appreciate that we conduct this additional due diligence on their behalf.
