Philosophy and process highlights

We believe careful selection of undervalued securities and spread sectors offering incremental yield and total return relative to the index is the best way to generate successful long-term investment outcomes.

We focus on securitized products as we believe this differentiated approach provides more opportunities to achieve higher credit quality while maintaining a yield advantage as compared to those invested in government or corporate credit-focused strategies.

We constantly look for value-add opportunities, which can lead to allocations outside of the benchmark with a focus on the securitized market.

Risk disclosure:  In general, when interest rates rise, fixed income values fall. Mortgage- and asset-backed securities are influenced by factors affecting the housing market and the assets underlying such securities. The securities may decline in value, face valuation difficulties and become more volatile and/or illiquid. They are also subject to prepayment risk, which occurs when mortgage holders refinance or repay loans sooner than expected, creating an early return of principal to loan holders.  

Fund holdings, sector allocations and portfolio statistics subject to change without notice.

1 The 30-day SEC Yield represents net investment income earned by the fund over the previous 30-day period, expressed as an annual percentage rate based on the Fund’s share price at the end of the 30-day period. 

Since inception risk statistics are calculated using monthly returns beginning on the first day of the Fund’s first full month of performance.

2 Cash & Other may include cash and money market funds. RMBS: Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities, CMBS: Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities.

3 Security quality ratings are derived from underlying portfolio securities by using the middle rating of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch. If only two of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch rates a security the higher of the two is selected. If only one of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch rates a security the available rating is used. For securities that are not rated by Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s or Fitch a rating from a secondary Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”) may be used. Ratings by any agency represent an opinion only, not a recommendation to buy or sell. Securities that are not rated by any agencies are reflected as Not Rated “NR”. 

The Overall Morningstar Rating is based on 391 Intermediate Core Bond funds as of 31 Mar 2022. The Fund’s Class I rating was 4 stars among 391 and 5 stars among 356 Intermediate Core Bond funds for the 3- and 5-year periods ended 31 Mar 2022.

The Morningstar Rating for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

The Morningstar Broad Fee Level data point compares the fund's prospectus adjusted operating net expense ratio to the prospectus adjusted operating net expense ratio of all the other funds within its Morningstar Category.
