Touchstone High Yield Fund
Sub-Advised by: Fort Washington Investment Advisors Inc.


The Fund seeks to achieve a high level of income by investing primarily in non-investment grade debt securities.

Investment Style

  • Evaluates overall investment opportunities and risks in different industries focusing on those that exhibit the potential for stability and predictability
  • Eliminates certain types of securities from purchase due to their structure
  • Applies rigorous credit selection process in an effort to identify securities that offer attractive investment opportunities
The Fund invests in debt securities which can lose their value as interest rates rise and are subject to credit risk which is the risk of deterioration in the financial condition of an issuer and/or general economic conditions that can cause the issuer to not make timely payments of principal and interest also causing the securities to decline in value and an investor can lose principal. When interest rates rise, the price of debt securities generally falls. Longer term securities are generally more volatile. The Fund invests in non-investment grade debt securities which are considered speculative with respect to the issuers' ability to make timely payments of interest and principal, may lack liquidity and has had more frequent and larger price changes than other debt securities. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
