Investment Strategy

The Payden Global Low Duration Fund seeks to benefit from the opportunities available through broadening the investment universe to include issuers and currencies outside of the U.S. while avoiding the volatility of longer-maturity bond funds. The fund is primarily comprised of government securities, investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds, mortgage- and asset-backed securities from U.S. and foreign issuers.

Role In Portfolio

Short-Term Global Bond – Appropriate for investors who desire the diversification available from sovereign and corporate debt of global issuers, but want the lower volatility of a short maturity profile.

Fund Highlights
Invests primarily in government securities, investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds, mortgage- and asset-backed securities from U.S. and foreign issuers
Shorter maturity typically means volatility is less than an intermediate bond fund
Ideal for investors with a short to intermediate horizon who want exposure to the global investment universe
No loads or 12b-1 fees (other fees apply)
The value of an investment will generally fall when interest rates rise

Fund Commentary

MARKET
We remain defensively positioned against further upward repricing of the federal funds rate. Portfolio credit risk continues to decline broadly though we maintained overall market value percentage exposures throughout the month. We uphold an increased allocation to government securities to increase overall portfolio liquidity to be responsive to market opportunities.
To position ourselves amidst this macro uncertainty, we retain an up-in-quality bias due to slowing economic activity and “hawkish” central banks’ influence on risk assets.
U.S. investment-grade corporate issuance for October was at the upper end of the $75.0 billion-$85.0 billion estimate, finishing the month at $83.7 billion. Supply was predominately issued in mid-October after earnings, half in financials, concentrated in A-rated bonds and across the curve in terms of maturity.

OUTLOOK
Looking ahead, we believe that the cumulative impact of tighter monetary policies experienced this year will continue to emanate on the broad economy. As such, we expect market volatility to remain high as the need and magnitude of further monetary actions needed remains highly uncertain. We remain skeptical that the Federal Reserve will relent on the pursuit for price stability in the near term and expect higher policy rates to remain through 2023. The probability of a recession in the next twelve months has increased, leading us to continue favoring higher-quality issuers across our investable security segments.
With volatility likely to remain elevated into 2023, our portfolio durations will extend modestly but remain conservative versus relative benchmarks. Our portfolios are positioned to be responsive to changing market conditions and any opportunities that the markets present.
