Episodes of Rising Interest Rates

Changes in interest rate levels are the primary driver of returns for U.S. Treasury bonds and high quality corporate bonds. A sharp rise in long-term rates often leads to losses for investors in these "conservative" asset classes. Ocean Park’s truly tactical, rules-based approach to investment management means that our models automatically adjust to market conditions such as changes in interest rate levels.

Ocean Park’s strategies often have had more positive returns during periods of rising long term rates.

The performance presented by Ocean Park Asset Management is shown gross of fees and does not reflect investment advisory fees. Actual client returns will be reduced by investment advisory fees and other expenses. Please refer to Part 2A of Ocean Park Asset Management’s Form ADV for a full disclosure of the fee schedule. The deduction of investment advisory fees from client accounts has a compounding effect on client returns. For example, an account with a 0.6% advisory fee deducted annually, a gross annual rate of return of 10%, and an initial investment of$100,000, would grow over a five-year period to approximately $153,375 (“net of fees”), versus $162,889 without fees (“gross of fees”). Over a ten-year period, using the same assumptions, an initial $100,000 investment would grow to approximately $244,225 net of fees, versus $259,374 gross of fees. The performance data shown is gross of fees charged for each performance period. The gross performance reflects the reinvestment of dividends but does not include investment advisory fees and other expenses which may occur between each client and their financial advisor and which will reduce returns. Specific investments in the Strategy may be made at different times and into different holdings. The performance data does represent the impact that material economic and market factors had on the investment manager’s decision-making. The performance shown represents past performance. Past performance is not an indication of future results. All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. The Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index is a broad-based flagship benchmark that measures the investment grade, U.S. dollar-denominated, fixed-rate taxable bond market. Investors cannot directly invest in an index and unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges. Past performance does not guarantee future results and there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Ocean Park Asset Management, Inc.
