Fund Commentary

MARKET
The US economic fundamentals continued to improve steadily with other developed peers appearing to follow along. As such, bond yields moved higher across the yield curve.
Volatility remained elevated, due to several geopolitical events, compared to recent years which led to greater moves in spread premium and absolute yield levels.
Credit sectors bounced back and broadly outperformed US Treasuries.

OUTLOOK
The global economy is fundamentally strong and domestic growth is likely to outpace most expectations. Similarly, corporate fundamentals continue to improve while earnings growth averaged their highest levels since 2010.
Political woes both domestically and globally will likely keep volatility higher over the short-run but we expect the fundamental strength in the economy and across corporate balance sheets to prevail.
While the market is likely to experience short-term bumps, the long-term strength and improvment in fundamentals provide a compelling backdrop for credit markets broadly.
