Delaware Investments has launched a fixed-income mutual fund that holds a variety of assets, including ABS and MBS, the Philadelphia-based firm said today. The fund is available to both individual and institutional investors.

The Delaware Diversified Floating Rate Fund, which seeks to provide total return, invests roughly 80% of its net assets in floating-rate securities under normal circumstances.

Its investments include ABS, MBS, U.S. government-guaranteed securities, bank loans, high yield bonds, investment-grade bonds, municipal bonds and sovereign debt.

The fund is managed by Kevin Loome, who heads Delaware’s high yield group; Roger Early and Paul Grillo, who are co-chief investment officers of the total return strategy group; and J. David Hillmeyer, who focuses on corporates and bank loans.

Delaware Investments is a member of the Macquarie Group and has more than $130 billion in assets under management.
