Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016


The Fund performed in line with its benchmark during the third quarter.

Our positioning in investmentgrade and high-yield corporate credit contributed positively to relative performance, while no single factor weighed significantly on results.

Strong global demand for U.S. credit continues to pressure valuations, while the outlook for earnings remains stagnant; we will continue to remain defensively positioned in corporate credit as a result.
