Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2015


The Fund underperformed its benchmark in the fourth quarter.

Our CMBS allocation weighed on relative performance, while our corporate credit allocation contributed.

We remain defensively positioned as we believe we are in the latter stages of a credit cycle and market liquidity is alarmingly low.
