Leveraged portfolio

A portfolio that includes risky assets purchased with funds borrowed.

Leveraged Portfolio

A portfolio that includes at least some securities that were bought with borrowed money. A leveraged portfolio is risky because the securities may result in a loss, which would leave the investor liable to repay the borrowed capital. However, if the securities result in a gain, the investor has essentially made a profit without using his/her own money.

NEW YORK, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Canaras Capital Management LLC is an asset manager in the syndicated leveraged loan market with strategies that range from highly leveraged portfolios to total return portfolios or low or unleveraged strategies.
Conditions in the credit markets have improved considerably since early March with ample financing currently available via repurchase arrangements to support conservatively leveraged portfolios of short-duration agency-guaranteed mortgage pass-through securities.
Capstead's core strategy is managing a leveraged portfolio of residential mortgage pass-through securities consisting almost exclusively of ARM securities issued and guaranteed by government-sponsored entities, either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, or by an agency of the federal government, Ginnie Mae.
Jacobs, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "The month of March 2008 was a tumultuous time for the credit markets characterized by a significant contraction in market liquidity centering on concerns over pricing for both non-agency and agency-guaranteed mortgage securities, changes in terms of financing via short-term repurchase agreements and, most critically, the potential for adverse changes in the availability of financing to support leveraged portfolios of mortgage securities.
We remain confident that our core investment strategy of conservatively managing a leveraged portfolio of agency-guaranteed residential ARM securities can produce attractive risk-adjusted returns over the long term while reducing but not eliminating sensitivity to changes in interest rates.
