Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2016


The Fund outperformed its benchmark in the second quarter of 2016.

Our investment-grade and highyield corporate credit positioning contributed to relative performance, while our cash position modestly weighed on results.

We continue to contend with frail global growth prospects and weak credit fundamentals. Our defensive positioning reflects our view that markets can go only so far on accommodative monetary policy and little in the way of accelerated fundamentals.
