Fund Commentary

MARKET
December was a respite for non-Treasury fixed-income sectors, as positive returns were posted broadly caused by a flight to quality (lower U.S. Treasury yields, wider yield premium).
Risk-off sentiment roiled the markets which caused yearly highs in investment-grade corporate, high-yield, and emerging-market bond yield differentials relative to U.S. Treasuries.
Non-Treasury fixed-income sectors posted their strongest total returns over the year in December on the heels of lower bond yields broadly.

OUTLOOK
The global economy is fundamentally strong and we believe U.S. growth is likely to outpace most expectations as the markets persist through U.S. trade tensions, emerging-market volatility, and eurozone stressors.
We anticipate that political woes globally will likely keep volatility higher over the short-run but we expect the fundamental strength in the global economy and across corporate balance sheets to prevail.
Given our view of higher rates, we favor a shorter-duration posture to help mitigate potential price sensitivity resulting from increases in yields.
