Semper Total Return Fund


About the Semper Total Return Fund:

The Semper Total Return Fund seeks to provide a high level of risk-adjusted current income and capital appreciation, by:

  • Investing in a portfolio of mortgage-backed securities (MBS), including agency and non-Agency residential MBS (RMBS) and commercial MBS (CMBS).
  • Offers diversification – low correlation to equities and other credit markets
  • Targets 4-6% annualised return whilst minimising volatility

The daily-dealing UCITS Fund will emulate Semper Capital Management’s existing US-domiciled MBS Total Return Strategy, providing European investors access to Semper Capital Management’s +20 years’ experience in fixed income and mortgage-backed securities for the first time.
