Financial Strategies Income Term Trust



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: The annual yield an investor would receive if the most recent fund distribution and current fund price stayed the same going forward. It is calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution and dividing by the Fund’s market price from the as-of date. The distribution rate may include a return of capital.
