Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2015


The Fund outperformed its benchmark in the first quarter.

Outperformance was driven by our MBS exposure as well as by our longer duration.

We remain defensively positioned given our expectation for continued volatility in the fixed income market.

We are keeping the Treasury allocation generally aligned with the bench mark while our credit exposure, though still overweight, is at its lowest since the 2008 crisis.
