Sports teams become champions by scoring more points than they give up. Oppenheimer Capital Income Fund aspires to do the same for investors who want to limit their portfolio’s downside risk without sacrificing its upside potential.
By carefully blending a variety of strategies and asset classes, Oppenheimer Capital Income Fund has the potential to deliver high risk-adjusted returns. The equity strategy targets companies whose earnings power may improve as a result of a change in long-term trends, while the fixed income portion seeks competitive returns with low-to-moderate volatility by targeting high quality corporate, mortgage and government fixed income securities. The opportunistic strategy targets investments in asset classes with different types of returns that can help diversify the portfolio.
Over the past five years, these strategies have helped the portfolio capture most of the market’s upside movements, while limiting downside movements to a greater extent than its Morningstar category average.

Value investing involves the risk that undervalued securities may not appreciate as anticipated. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Derivative instruments whose values depend on the performance of an underlying security, asset, interest rate, index or currency, entail potentially higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments.

Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile.
