Fund Commentary

MARKET
Continued progressions with trade war negotiations allowed equities to finish a record year near all-time highs while leaving most fixed-income asset classes near yearly tights with regard to bond yield differentials relative to US Treasuries.
Bond yield differentials relative to US Treasuries compressed across the board as investors clamored for risk assets.
Longer-dated maturities led a move higher among US Treasuries yields, resulting in the steepest US Treasury yield curve since early in 2018 while limiting fixed-income returns.

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