The growth and performance of the Fund is reflective of Canyon’s research process, focus on security selection, and our long history of generating strong absolute and risk-adjusted returns in structured credit sectors. In an environment of low global interest rates and compressed credit spreads, we believe the Fund’s structured credit focus has the potential to offer investors attractive relative returns and diversification away from generic corporate credit risk.27 August 2021
