The Total Yield Strategy seeks first to generate superior yields over cash investments by blending securities with different sources of premium yield advantage over traditional cash.  Secondly, it seeks to preserve capital by minimizing the risk of loss.  The strategy harvests meaningful yield spreads where they naturally occur and blends the primarily “spread duration risks” to achieve an optimum yield vs. liquidity and risk.  The strategy is best thought of as a substitute to conventional narrow cash management strategies and investments such as T-Bills, money market funds, commercial paper, and bank CDs.  The portfolio may invest in all sectors of the fixed income market via primarily either ETFs or mutual funds that exhibit consistent performance, adherence to style discipline, and with solid investment philosophies.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Presented performance results are total return and include the reinvestment of all income. Net of fee performance was calculated using the highest applicable annual management fee. Valuations and performance is reported in U.S. dollars. The results for individual accounts and for different periods may vary depending on market conditions and other factors.

All performance results prior to the establishment of Anfield in August 2009 were achieved by the portfolio manager prior to the formation of Anfield and have been linked to the performance history of Anfield.

Diversified Liquid Alternatives simulated backtest results were derived from the retroactive application of a model and do not represent actual investment performance or trading. Returns have not been reduced by trading costs which would be charged if the adviser were actually managing client’s money. Returns have been reduced by an annual management fee of 1.25% applied on a quarterly basis. The backtested results have inherent limitations as the results are derived from the retroactive application of a model developed with the benefit of hindsight. Performance may not reflect the impact that certain material economic and market factors might have had on the decision-making process if Anfield Capital Management was actually managing client assets according to the model. The strategy could not have been implemented before Jan 2011as this was the first date that the majority of the securities in the portfolio were available. Beginning May 2014, Anfield Capital Management started managing actual client accounts according to the Diversified Liquid Alternatives strategy.
