Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016


The Fund outperformed its benchmark during the quarter.

Our investment-grade and highyield corporate credit positioning drove outperformance.

Strong global demand for U.S. credit continues to pressure valuations, while the outlook for earnings remains stagnant; we will continue to remain defensively positioned in corporate credit as a result.
