Voya Floating Rate Senior Loan FundDecember 31, 2016

Commentary Commentary-tooltip
Performance Performance-tooltip

The Fund’s investment objectives are to (i) provide distributions; (ii) preserve capital; and (iii) generate increased returns in the event that short-term interest rates rise, in each case, through exposure to a diversified portfolio consisting primarily of Senior Loans and other senior debt obligations of non-investment grade North American borrowers, actively managed by the Sub-Advisor.

The Fund has two classes of Units: Class A Units and Class U Units. Class A Units (TSX: ISL.UN) are denominated and pay distributions in Canadian dollars. Class U Units (TSX: ISL.U) are denominated and pay distributions in U.S. dollars.

The Fund will not have a fixed distribution policy, but intends to make monthly distributions based on the actual and expected returns on the Portfolio. Given that the majority of the Portfolio will be invested in Senior Loans which are floating rate, returns will vary with changes in interest rates. The Fund’s initial distribution target is expected to be $0.0417 per Unit per month (US $0.0417 in the case of the Class U Units), representing an initial yield on the Unit issue price of 5.0% per annum, consisting primarily of returns of capital which are not immediately taxable but which reduce a Unitholder’s adjusted cost base of its Units.
