Hartford, Conn.-based multi-manager shop Virtus Investment Partners, Inc. today revealed that it has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for five new open-end mutual funds.
The new offerings include the Virtus Herzfeld Fund, the Virtus Wealth Masters Fund, the Virtus Emerging Markets Equity Income Fund, the Virtus Emerging Markets Debt Fund, and the Virtus International Small-Cap Fund. The funds are expected to be launched later this year.
"Our strategy is to provide clients with a wide array of products to help them adapt to changing market cycles, and these new funds further diversify our product offerings by adding the expertise and differentiated approaches of five respected investment managers," stated Frank Waltman, executive vice president, product management, at Virtus.
"These funds will offer financial advisors a range of new investment options for their clients, including strategies that are not readily available to the retail investor."
