Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


The Fund outperformed its benchmark in the second quarter.

Outperformance was driven by security selection within investment-grade and high-yield corporate credit and yield curve positioning.

We remain defensively positioned with increased exposure to liquid, short-dated Treasurys and a credit allocation close to the lowest it’s been since the financial crisis.

We are mindful of numerous risks including liquidity, a credit cycle that is potentially peaking, global uncertainty and rate volatility.
