High Income and Growth Over Time

Durig’s Fixed Income 2 (FX2) High Yield Managed Income Portfolio was specifically designed to earn you more income through a large and diverse portfolio of domestically issued, high yield corporate bonds. These bonds have been reviewed at length by Durig, and are selected for the portfolio only once they have passed our proven selection process.  The bonds held in the portfolio are often laddered (with regard to their scheduled maturity date), equating to relatively stable payments of  bond interest (ie. income).

In fact, the bonds contained in the FX2 Managed Income Portfolio generate well over 6% in cash generation from bond interest alone. In addition, by reinvesting the 6% income the portfolio generates as bonds purchased at a discount are redeemed at face value, the potential benefit for growth of income over time becomes even more pronounced as these benefits compound over the years, further boosting total return.

Why Low-Cost, Individually Managed Accounts? 

Separately managed accounts allow for customization, bringing investors even closer to achieving  their income goals, not to mention more accurate tax implications to the investor as compared to a mutual fund structure.

Relationships Founded in Trust

Over the years, Durig has worked one-on-one with our clients  to develop lasting, personal, (and often, life-long) relationships that were  founded in trust. As a Fiduciary, Durig is proud to retain the duty and privilege to always act in our clients best interests.

Investors are hard pressed these days to find an investment professional that actually takes the time to get to know you on a genuinely personal basis, rarely expressing genuine concern or care over you (or your family’s) wellbeing / future financial goals.  Skip the sup-par service and false pleasantries observed in large financial institutions and experience the difference with Durig, where we are “Always putting your interests first!

Short Maturities Help to Reduce Associated Volatility and Allow for Agile Management

The short average maturities (less than 4 years) in FX2 help to reduce the impact of interest rate risk and associated volatility, with the scheduled bond interest payments (especially when reinvested over time) helping to grow interest income and significantly enhance total portfolio return.

Generally speaking, by keeping the average maturity of the bonds held in the portfolio relatively low, we believe we mitigate many of the less favorable impacts associated with changes to interest rates, new regulations, or other, social, political, or economic conflicts and turmoils.

By keeping bond maturities under four years, Durig believes it has positioned the portfolio for much more nimble management and should be subject to much less downside than longer-termed fixed income portfolios would be.

About Durig

Durig Capital provides investors with a specialized, transparent fiduciary service at a very low cost. Our FX2 (Discretionary Management) Portfolio over time has greatly outperformed our FX1 (Non-discretionary) Portfolio, giving significantly higher (at times double) the returns of FX1. Our professional service enables access to a broad spectrum of bond, high yields, and lower price points that are often found in less efficient markets, but not evidenced in many bond services.

We track thousands of bond issues and their underlying fundamentals for months, sometimes years, before finding any that achieve or surpass the targeted criteria we have found to be successful.  Our main priority is to provide the best opportunities for our clients. Our bond reviews are first distributed to our clients, then published on our website and our free email newsletter, and lastly on the Internet and distributed to thousands of prospective clients and competitive firms. Bond selections may not be published if they have very limited availability or liquidity, or viewed as not being in the best interests of our clients. When high yielding bonds with improving fundamentals are acquired at lower costs, Durig Capital believes that investors will appreciate earning higher incomes with our superior high income, low cost, fiduciary services.
