The Easterly Income Opportunities Fund is singularly focused on seeking to provide competitive yields to the High Yield market but with significantly lower volatility and risk. The goal is to provide consistent positive absolute returns in all market scenarios. We aim to achieve that by concentrating on finding opportunities in quality Residential Mortgage-Back Securities (RMBS) which are generally not subject to corporate credit risk.
