December 2020 marked the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Axonic Strategic Income Fund, which now stands at $875 million AUM as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2020. For the quarter, the institutional share class return brought 2.3% to investors. Collectively as a firm, Axonic Capital manages $3.7 billion and employs fifty-two investment professionals. After the Fund’s first three months of under $1 million AUM, it brought in significant inflows as the COVID-19 pandemic brought buying power to structured credit.
After Skypoint Capital CEO Brian Smith provided an overview of the Fund’s performance during the quarter, he was joined by Axonic Capital Managing Partner and CIO Clay DeGiacinto, who reflected on the quarter, past strategies and the macro-factors that may provide opportunities and influence portfolio positioning moving forward. Other investment professionals from Axonic Capital then continued the call by offering insights on the past, present and potential future of aviation as it relates to the Fund.
Some of the specific topics covered during this call include:
- The biggest strengths in the Fund’s asset allocation strategy
- Current portfolio positioning as it relates to asset classes
- How the Fund has found returns in aviation assets despite the pandemic
While during this call, the Axonic Capital team specifically highlighted aviation, the same detail they bring to the aviation market they also bring to all underlying assets as it relates to structured credit.
