Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2017


The Fund outperformed its benchmark during the quarter.

Our investment-grade and high-yield corporate credit allocations were the leading contributors to outperformance.

We expect both Treasury yields and corporate-credit spreads to be range-bound in the months ahead.
