Logan Circle Partners Announces Launch of Registered Mutual Funds
Company Release - 2/3/2015 10:37 AM EST
PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Logan Circle Partners L.P. (“Logan Circle”) today announced the launch of the Logan Circle Partners Funds* ̶ a family of mutual funds that will broaden investor access to investment strategies previously offered exclusively to the firm's institutional clients. The Logan Circle Partners Core Plus Fund (Tickers: LPCIX, LPCYX) ̶ the fund family's first offering ̶ was launched on December 31, 2014 and is accepting new investors. Logan Circle is in the process of launching a High Yield Fund and has filed a registration statement for this fund with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As the traditional investment arm within Fortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG), Logan Circle is focused on asset management for institutional clients. Utilizing the firm’s foundation of credit research and security and sector selection, these recently established investment vehicles will provide investors an alternative means to access Logan Circle’s investment strategies. Accordingly, the Logan Circle Partners Funds will be available to investors through “Institutional” (I-Class) and “Retirement” (R-Class) share classes. The investment philosophy and process for each of the funds will be consistent with Logan Circle’s existing separately managed account strategies.
The Logan Circle Partners Funds will complement the firm’s existing long/short credit mutual fund: the Fortress Long/Short Credit Fund**, for which Logan Circle acts as investment manager. This fund is considered a liquid alternative strategy and is available to institutional and individual investors (Tickers: LPLIX, LPLRX, LPLAX, LPLCX).
Additionally, Logan Circle is the adviser to an SEI Trust Company-sponsored Collective Investment Trust vehicle, offering the Core Plus Collective Trust and Emerging Markets Debt Collective Trust to serve pension, profit sharing and governmental plans.
