Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2017


The Fund underperformed its benchmark in the first quarter of 2017.

Idiosyncratic risk in a number of our holdings caused security selection to detract from relative results.

Solid corporate fundamentals in combination with strong technical factors support our optimistic outlook for the highyield asset class.
