New York, NY - January 3, 2013 - Catalyst Funds, in conjunction with Princeton Advisory Group, announces the launch of the Catalyst/Princeton Floating Rate Income Fund (Tickers: (CFRAX, CFRCX & CFRIX) which seeks to take advantage of the current interest rate market by investing in a portfolio of senior floating rate corporate loans. The Fund attempts to meet the needs of investors seeking:
- Current income and preservation of capital
- Potential for additional diversification through an investment in a low duration fixed income portfolio
- Reduction of the effects of interest-rate volatility
"With interest rates at historic lows and governments around the world continuing to run deficits and print money, interest rates will most likely rise.

"We are very excited to be able to partner with Mr. Sood and his experienced team of investment professionals at Princeton Advisory Group in the launch of this new fund", stated Jerry Szilagyi, Chairman of the Catalyst Funds.

Senior Floating Rate Loans hold a senior position in the capital structure and, at the time of purchase, are typically rated between BBB and B. Senior floating rate loans offer: 1) a floating rate coupon that is tied to a variable interest rate such as LIBOR, which resets every 30, 60 or 90 days, 2) low correlation with other fixed income investments, and 3) senior-most debt in an issuer's capital structure.
