Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


U.S. growth is on a solid foundation, but deteriorating growth abroad and plunging crude oil prices have captured the attention of the fixed income market.

Performance was driven partly by our overweight in corporate credit, specifically an overweight in the energy sector.

Going forward, we have assumed a more defensive positioning, reducing our credit holdings, including our energy exposure, and raising our Treasury weighting.

Tame inflation, global growth concerns and stepped up Treasury purchases by foreign investors could contain longend yields for now.
