Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


Short-term rates rose as a consensus grew around the Federal Reserve’s rate hike sometime in mid- to late 2015.

Underperformance was driven largely by our security selection within corporate credit, where we are overweight.

We anticipate that the global financial markets may be vulnerable to increased volatility, and given our focus on capital preservation, we have reduced our credit exposure and increased our Treasury exposure.
