  5. Eventide Announces the Eventide Core Bond Fund

    Leave a Comment

    BOSTON, MA (September 3, 2020) – Eventide is pleased to announce the launch of its seventh mutual fund, the Eventide Core Bond Fund (ETARX, ETCRX, ETNRX, ETIRX). With a primary objective of pursuing total return consistent with income generation, the Fund seeks to invest in bonds and other securities that offer a positive yield advantage, discounted price, and improving credit profile with an expected weighted average duration between three and nine years. The Core Bond Fund, along with all of Eventide’s funds, seeks to provide capital for companies who are serving society in a positive way.

    The Fund will be managed by Eventide Portfolio Manager Dolores Bamford, who serves as the Director of Investment Research at Eventide as well as the portfolio manager for Eventide’s Multi-Asset Income Fund, Dividend Opportunities Fund, and Limited-Term Bond Fund. Bamford said, “Bonds can be such an impactful conduit for providing companies and projects with capital and an important tool for investors to balance risk in their portfolios. The Eventide Core Bond Fund can help investors who want to have a positive impact on society while seeking an intermediate duration risk profile.” Eventide CEO, Robin John, commented on adding the Core Bond Fund to Eventide’s fund offerings: “We have continuously heard from investors and advisors that there is a need for more fixed-income options within the values-based investing space. Eventide is pleased to continue to provide the appropriate tools for people to develop a sound investment portfolio that is consistent with their values and Eventide’s Business 360® approach.”

    The Eventide Core Bond Fund joins the existing Eventide Funds—the Eventide Gilead Fund, the Eventide Healthcare & Life Sciences Fund, the Eventide Exponential Technologies Fund, the Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund, the Eventide Dividend Opportunities Fund, and the Eventide Limited-Term Bond Fund—with more than $5 billion in net assets under management. Eventide Funds are managed by Eventide Asset Management, LLC, a Boston-based investment adviser that seeks to provide high performance by investing in companies that create compelling value for their customers, employees, supply chain, host communities, the environment, and society broadly.

    The Fund is available in four share classes – Class A (NASDAQ: ETARX), Class C (NASDAQ: ETCRX), Class N (NASDAQ: ETNRX), and Class I (NASDAQ: ETIRX).

    There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its objectives.

    Mutual funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The Fund’s ethical values screening criteria could cause it to under-perform similar funds that do not have such screening criteria. Investors in the Fund should be aware that interest rates may change at any time based on government policy. In general, the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. Longer term securities may be more sensitive to changes in interest rates. A rise in interest rates may result in volatility and increased redemptions, which in turn could result in the Fund being forced to liquidate portfolio securities at disadvantageous prices. Interest rates are sensitive to changes in inflation, and investing in bonds exposes investors to inflation risk. Bonds may be subject to default, causing loss of invested capital. Fixed income investments may be of any maturity or credit quality, but the Fund’s weighted average effective portfolio duration will be between three years and nine years. The Fund may invest, directly or indirectly, in “junk bonds.” Such securities are speculative investments that carry greater risks than higher quality debt securities. There are unique risks associated with asset backed securities, convertible securities, credit, duration, emerging markets, extension, foreign securities, income, mortgage back securities, municipal bonds, preferred stocks, pre-payment, securities, sovereign debt, and U.S. Agency securities that are covered in the Fund’s prospectus and SAI.

    Investors should consider a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money.

  6. Eventide Announces the Eventide Exponential Technologies Fund

    Leave a Comment

    BOSTON, MA (August 20, 2020) – Eventide is pleased to announce the launch of its sixth mutual fund, the Eventide Exponential Technologies Fund (ETAEX, ETCEX, ETNEX, ETIEX). With a primary objective of long-term capital appreciation, the Fund seeks to invest in companies primarily positioned in the information technology and communication services sectors with a high emphasis on the software, technology hardware and equipment, and semiconductor and communications groups of industries. Along with all Eventide Funds, the Exponential Technologies Fund seeks to invest in companies helping to create a better world by serving society, customers, employees, and other key stakeholders.

    The Fund will be managed by Eventide Portfolio Manager Anant Goel, who has served as the technology analyst for the Eventide Gilead Fund since 2016. Goel said, “Technological innovation is currently and will continue to be a powerful force in creating our future economy. I believe there are many exciting opportunities for investors to participate in the growth of some of these companies poised to bring about positive change in our world.” Eventide CIO, Finny Kuruvilla, MD, PhD, said of Goel’s appointment to manage the fund, “I have been impressed with Anant’s thought leadership and deep understanding of what drives long-term company performance in this area. He understands the importance of the intertwining connection between company performance and their ability to create value for society.”

    The Eventide Exponential Technologies Fund joins the existing Eventide Funds with more than $5 billion in net assets under management: the Eventide Gilead Fund, the Eventide Healthcare & Life Sciences Fund, the Eventide Multi-Asset Income Fund, the Eventide Dividend Opportunities Fund, and the Eventide Limited-Term Bond Fund. The Eventide Funds are managed by Eventide Asset Management, LLC, a Boston-based investment adviser that seeks to provide high performance by investing in companies that create compelling value for their customers, employees, supply chain, host communities, the environment, and society broadly.

    The Fund is available in four share classes – Class A (NASDAQ: ETAEX), Class C (NASDAQ: ETCEX), Class N (NASDAQ: ETNEX), and Class I (NASDAQ: ETIEX).

    There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its objectives.

    Mutual funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The Fund typically invests at least 80% of its net assets in technology companies defined as those in the information technology, communications, and healthcare technology and devices industries. The Fund invests primarily in companies that Eventide believes are participating in and benefitting from technologies, innovations, themes, or trends that have long-term exponential characteristics. The term “exponential” means the potential for accelerated advancements in underlying technologies that can positively impact capabilities and development cycles of a company’s products and services. Not every company in the Fund’s portfolio will experience exponential growth, and the Fund is not expected to deliver exponential returns. The Fund’s ethical values screening criteria could cause it to under-perform similar funds that do not have such screening criteria. The Fund can invest in smaller-sized companies which may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have a lower trading volume than larger companies. The Fund may experience higher volatility than the general market due to being concentrated in the technology industries. Companies in the technology industries have different risks including but not limited to products becoming obsolete, and entrance of competing products. The Fund has non-diversification risk as a high percentage of Fund assets may be invested in a limited number of companies. The Fund can have risk related to option investing. There are special risks associated with investments in foreign companies including exposure to currency fluctuations, less efficient trading markets, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards. The Fund can invest in private companies. Private investments include various risks including but not limited to lack of liquidity, capital commitment risk, and valuation risk. Private companies may not be financially profitable and have uncertain futures, subjecting them to additional risks. The Fund has a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate.

    Investors should consider a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money.

    Boston, MA—Eventide Asset Management, LLC, announced today changes to its Global Dividend Opportunities Fund (ETADX, ETCDX, ETIDX, ETNDX), a mutual fund that seeks to provide dividend income and long-term capital appreciation with a secondary objective of dividend growth. The changes include:

    • The name of the Fund will now be Eventide Dividend Opportunities Fund;
    • The following policy will no longer be an investment policy of the Fund: Under normal conditions, at least 40% of the Fund’s assets will be in securities of issuers domiciled in at least 3 countries outside of the United States.

    The changes represent a move for the fund to have a higher emphasis on domestic holdings. Dolores Bamford, CFA, Portfolio Manager for the fund, said this about the changes: “The changes are consistent with our expertise in investing in high quality companies with strong fundamentals and competitive equity dividend income. Our team and security selection process continue to be driven by bottom-up fundamental analysis to identify companies that are making a positive impact.” Eventide CIO, Finny Kuruvilla, MD, PhD, commented, “We believe that Ms. Bamford’s track record of excellence in portfolio management, her passion for values-based investing, and her style of quality investing are best fulfilled with the name change and emphasis on our core competencies.”
    The fund will continue to have the requirement of having 80% of its holdings in dividend paying companies. The Fund is available in four share classes: Class A (NASDAQ: ETADX), Class C (NASDAQ: ETCDX), Class I (NASDAQ: ETIDX), and Class N (NASDAQ: ETNDX).
    Eventide Asset Management, LLC, currently has five mutual fund offerings and practices ‘investing that makes the world rejoice’. The company’s mission statement is, “Eventide strives to honor God and serve its clients by investing in companies that create compelling value for the global common good.”
