Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


Global markets in the fourth quarter were shaped by a dramatic decline in crude oil prices and a rally in the U.S. dollar.

The Fund’s outperformance was driven partly by its currency positioning, including underweights in the euro and the yen.

We have decreased risk in the portfolio by reducing our corporate credit, though we continue to favor select European corporate bonds.
