Goodbye, 60/40

It’s no secret the traditional 60/40 portfolio simply isn’t doing what it used to for investors. Rather than hanging on in a bad relationship, hoping we can capture what’s been lost, we believe now is the time to walk away—for good—from the 60/40. 

In a market where flexibility and investment discipline are critical to driving return and generating income, we need a strategy like FS Credit Opportunities Corp. We truly feel we need to pursue the attractive dividend and access to credit opportunities in both public and private markets that FSCO offers.

We wish we could say we’re sorry, but we’re not.

  • As of June 30, 2022.
  • Target dividend is based on the Fund’s net asset value as of October 31, 2022. The actual dividend yield at and post-listing may be higher or lower based on the then current NAV. The payment of future dividends on FSCO’s common shares is subject to the discretion of FSCO’s board of directors and applicable legal restrictions and, therefore, there can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of any such future dividends.
  • As of June 30, 2022, based on all debt instruments in FSCO’s portfolio. Duration measures the sensitivity of a fixed income investment’s price to changes in interest rates and is measured in years. A duration of 1.18 years suggests that a 1% change in interest rates would equate to a 1.18% change in FSCO’s net asset value.

  • As of June 30, 2022, senior secured debt includes first lien loans, second lien loans and senior secured bonds.
