Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016


The Fund underperformed its benchmark in the third quarter of 2016.

Our security selection in high-yield corporate credit, which we believe to be more defensive in nature, did not keep pace with the high-yield asset class overall.

A global reach for yield is supporting demand for U.S. corporate credit and prolonging the later stages of the credit cycle. We are incrementally adding to credit, but our composition of credit remains defensive.
