Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


During the quarter, short-term rates rose on anticipation that a rate hike was nearing.

Fund underperformance was primarily due to our yield curve positioning in Treasurys.

We are defensively positioned due not only to the possibility of rate hikes, but also a flood of new issuance, shareholder-friendly activity and illiquid markets.

To generate favorable risk-adjusted returns in a challenging environment, we will rely upon our fundamental, bottom-up, and security-specific investment approach.
