Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


Outperformance was driven by a combination of security selection, yield-curve positioning and asset allocation across the portfolio.

In keeping with our focus on risk-adjusted returns, we have assumed a more defensive positioning given uneven economic progress, uncertainty on rate hikes and illiquidity.

Given our cautious stance, the Fund currently favors higher-quality issuers with robust balance sheets.
