Fund Commentary

MARKET
The front end of the yield curve steepened in April with front end rates at near-term highs. One-year maturity yields ended the month at 2.23%, increasing substantially by 0.15%.
Total investment grade corporate issuance for April was robust at $111 billion, only 1% behind the year to date pace of issuance in 2017.
Three-month LIBOR continued higher in April, increasing from 2.31% to 2.36%, keeping pace with three-month U.S. Treasury bill yields.

OUTLOOK
The market has adjusted to be more in-line with the Fed’s projections for 3 hikes in 2018, although it continues to underprice the number of hikes in 2019 and beyond. We expect four hikes in 2018.
Floating-rate securities should benefit from additional hikes as LIBOR continues to move higher.
Even with the expectation of higher volatility throughout 2018, we continue to maintain a high allocation to selective BBB-rated securities given the additional yield premium imbedded in these names. We look to avoid companies whose deteriorating fundamentals induce a greater threat of engaging in material levering events.
