Home Loan Market Update – January 2022

Symphony’s Floating Rate Loan Fund (the “Fund”) invests primarily in floating rate preferred loans, which are the Company’s most important obligations to the Borrower and are secured by the Borrower’s assets. Large loans have a secured first priority claim on repayment, before bonds and equity. Large loans offer a high level of income and low interest rate risk compared to traditional fixed income asset classes. Symphony believes that key credit fundamentals for loans remain strong as the US economy continues to recover and corporate default rates are expected to remain low.

The fund offers a distribution of $0.48 per unit per year on Class A shares, paid per month, representing a cash dividend rate of 6.1% per annum based on TSX’s closing price on January 14, 2022. The fund is available for purchase on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol SSF.UN.
