Hilton Capital Management, LLC

Destra Capital partners with Hilton Capital Management LLC to bring their Tactical Income Strategy to market in two different vehicles, a mutual fund called the Direxion Hilton Tactical Income Fund and for certain investors, as a separately managed account, the Hilton Capital Tactical Income Strategy.

Hilton Capital Management follows a distinctive investment process that principally focuses on yield while attempting to mitigate market risk. The manager aims to invest in high quality companies that may offer an attractive level of risk adjusted returns. When a potential position is evaluated for inclusion, Hilton’s management team examines the company across their capital structure to determine where the investment opportunity offers the best risk adjusted return potential. They seek to limit the volatility in the portfolio and generate solid returns without taking on undue risk. The managers believe, through the use of tactical asset allocation amongst cash, equities, and fixed-income; they can generate attractive returns while reducing fund volatility over market cycles.

Tactical Income Strategy

​Investment Objective

The Hilton Capital Tactical Income Strategy ("Tactical Income”) seeks capital preservation with an emphasis on income generation as a key component to competitive total returns while minimizing risk and volatility.

Investment Strategy

Tactical Income is a balanced investment strategy that seeks to mitigate portfolio risk by creating a diversified portfolio of income producing securities that offer the potential for capital appreciation.

All potential investments are approached from a global macro-economic perspective, taking into account fiscal/monetary policy, interest rates, commodity pricing, government policy and general business conditions. Based on these perspectives, a top down analysis is applied to identify sectors and individual companies which fit the desired risk and income profile based on fundamental analysis of balance sheet, credit quality and income stability. In this process companies with which to invest are identified, as well as where in the capital structure investments will be made. The decision making process is a team approach amongst the Chief Investment Officer William Garvey and Portfolio Managers Alexander Oxenham and C. Craig O’Neill.
