Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2016


The Fund performed in line with its benchmark.

Positioning in Treasurys and MBS aided relative results, as did security selection in investment-grade corporate credit. Cash and out-of-index bank loans were relative detractors.

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