New Mutual Fund Family Launched
YieldQuest Advisors has launched a family of three no-load, open-end mutual funds.
The YieldQuest Total Return Bond Fund is an intermediate-term, high-quality bond fund that utilizes an active approach by attempting to take advantage of inefficiencies in the taxable fixed-income markets. A similar strategy is employed on the tax-free side through the YieldQuest Tax Exempt Bond Fund. The YieldQuest Core Equity Fund utilizes a slightly contrarian, active, sector-rotation approach, while again trying to find inefficiencies in the marketplace.
Atlanta-based YieldQuest Advisors LLC seeks to provide advisors and their clients with risk-adjusted returns that are, after fees, superior when compared to other separate account managers, open-end funds or portfolios of individual bonds or stocks. The firm specializes in providing separate account management services to registered investment advisors, asset managers and financial planners. Its platform offers fixed-income and equity portfolios.
Clients are informed of market conditions and current strategies through commentary, e-newsletters and alerts, conference calls and customized portfolio reports.
