Fund Commentary

MARKET
A fresh round of attacks in the U.S.-China trade war agitated financial markets shortly after the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates for the first time in a decade in an effort to negate the dispute's effects on global growth.
Fixed income posted an exceptionally strong month led by a substantial move lower in bond in U.S. Treasury yields as investors clamored for "risk-free" assets. The U.S. Treasury 10-year yield dipped below 1.5% for the first time in three years and the U.S. Treasury 30-year yield dropped under 2% for the first time in history. Gold also reached a six-year high.
The additional yield required to hold non-Treasury bonds increased during the month, led by lower rated bonds.
The Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Index returned 2.59% in August, led primarily by the rally in U.S. Treasuries. This was the best one-month return since 2008.

OUTLOOK
We expect that U.S. economic growth is likely to outpace market expectations despite outstanding U.S. trade tensions, global geopolitical concerns, and eurozone stressors.
Volatility remains elevated given outstanding binary events but we believe the fundamental strength in the U.S. economy and low expected default rates should prevail.
