Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2015


The Fund underperformed its benchmark during the period.

We remain defensively positioned and further decreased our investment-grade and high-yield corporate credit allocation during the period.

Underperformance was largely attributable to our overweight allocation to high-yield corporate credit.

We expect elevated volatility given slowing global growth, uncertain U.S. monetary policy, new bond issuance and elevated shareholder-friendly activity.
