Global Market Perspective

Market Perspectives on Fixed Income

  • For the first time since the 2008 financial crisis, the world's major central banks appear poised to go their separate ways, taking global interest rates in sharply different directions.
  • Diverging interest rates are creating relative value opportunities at a time when many investors are trying to assess the potential impact of the Fed's next move on their bond portfolios.
  • Investors seeking to reduce their exposure to rising U.S. interest rates may want to consider the merits of a diversified global bond strategy that uses dynamic country selection and yield curve positioning in an effort to improve yield and return.

Strategic Income Fund

A conservative "core" fixed income portfolio that is designed to generate strong-risk adjusted returns with lower volatility.

A flexible yield solution by allowing for fixed income "plus sectors" and unhedged currency exposure, while seeking strong, risk-adjusted returns with lower volatility.


Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise significantly from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term. High-yield bonds carry greater default risk than higher-rated bonds along with greater liquidity risk. To the extent the fund holds foreign bonds, it will be subject to special risks, including potentially adverse political and economic developments overseas, greater volatility, lower liquidity, and the possibility that foreign currencies will decline against the dollar. The fund's investments in emerging markets are subject to the risk of abrupt and severe price declines.
