Financial Strategies Income Term Trust

Overview

FOCUSING ON COMMUNITY BANK DEBT

The Angel Oak Financial Strategies Income Term Trust is a closed-end fund that seeks current income with a secondary objective of total return. The Fund utilizes a banking sector debt-centric strategy, which exhibits low historical correlations to other areas of the market. The investment highlights of the Fund include:

  • Access to a niche market segment.
  • Focus on high quality credit with at least 50% of the Fund’s depository institution debt investments publicly rated investment grade or, if deemed unrated, scored as investment grade by Angel Oak’s in-house proprietary BankSURF credit-quality assessment model.
  • Asset class duration historically uncorrelated to interest rates.
  • Benefits from Angel Oak’s extensive resources and expertise in actively managing community bank debt investments.

Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Performance quoted is past performance and is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Short-term performance is not a good indication of the Fund’s future performance and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Performance is net of fees.

1The inception date of the Angel Oak Financial Strategies Income Term Trust (FINS) was 5/28/19.

2Managed Assets means the total assets of the Trust (including any assets attributable to leverage) minus the sum of accrued liabilities (other than debt representing financial leverage).

3Distribution Rate: Distribution rates are calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution paid or declared through today’s date and then dividing by the market price on the last day of the quarter. The distribution consists of the sum of net investment income, net realized short-term capital gains, net realized long-term capital gains, and return of capital. Distribution rates may vary. Any distribution adjustment will not be reflected until after the declaration date for the next distribution. See the Fund’s 19a-1 Notices, if any, located under the “Tax Notices” section of the website for estimates of distribution sources. Final determination of the source and tax status of all distributions paid in the current year will be made after year-end.
