Redwood U.S. Preferred Share Fund

The Redwood U.S. Preferred Share Fund, managed by a Chicago-based Nuveen Asset Management, employs a fundamental, active approach that combines bottom-up credit research and top-down structural analysis to invest in U.S. institutional preferred securities that currently offer some of the most attractive yields in the investment-grade universe. The Fund provides access to preferred shares across the US$1,000-par institutional market, using a fundamental approach to identify high-quality securities and opportunistically capture structural inefficiencies caused by liquidity and technical factors. The Fund now offers currency hedged (RPU), non-currency hedged (RPU.B), and U.S.-dollar-denominated (RPU.U) units.
