Fund Description

The Berwyn Income Fund (BERIX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to provide a high level of current income. BERIX uses a two-sided approach to achieve its objective. First, it uses a value selection method to invest in a variety of corporate-based, fixed-income securities, which can include corporate bonds, convertibles and preferred stocks. Second, the fund can hold up to 30% of its portfolio in dividend-paying equities. The dual combination provides a high level of current income.

Given its dual mandate and potential for high income, BERIX makes an ideal subcore position for those seeking a paycheck from their portfolios. The fund is managed by the Killen Group.
