News Image
We’re excited to bring the investment expertise of TwentyFour to U.S. investors.

American Beacon Advisors, Inc. (“American Beacon”), a leading provider of investment advisory services to institutional and retail markets, launched the American Beacon TwentyFour Strategic Income Fund (Institutional: TFGIX, Investor: TFGPX, Y Class: TFGYX) today.

“We’re excited to bring the investment expertise of TwentyFour to U.S. investors,” Gene L. Needles, Jr., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Beacon, said. “We believe their blend of people and absolute-return mindset along with their actively managed investment process is a competitive advantage that will be well received by our clients.”

The Fund’s sub-advisor, TwentyFour Asset Management (US) LP (“TwentyFour”) develops a top-down macroeconomic view of the global economic environment as indicated by factors such as interest rates, equity markets, corporate profitability, international capital flows, government policy and other relevant inputs. TwentyFour then performs a bottom-up analysis that focuses on an issuer’s creditworthiness and considers historical trends and patterns in an instrument’s price and relative valuation.

The sub-advisor examines the relative risk and return characteristics of each investment and seeks to identify opportunities to establish long positions in income-generating instruments that, at times, may have the potential for price appreciation.

The investment team also seeks to reduce or hedge positions in instruments that may decline in value, experience unwanted volatility or when better investment opportunities are identified.

Important Information: Investing in derivative instruments involves liquidity, credit, interest rate and market risks. Investments in high yield securities are subject to greater levels of credit, interest rate, market and liquidity risks than investment-grade securities. Because the Fund may invest in fewer issuers than a more diversified portfolio, the fluctuating value of a single holding may have a greater effect on the value of the Fund. Investing in foreign and emerging market securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations and economic and political risks. Please see the prospectus for a complete discussion of the Fund’s risks. There can be no assurances that the investment objectives of this Fund will be met.
