High Yield Fund
High Yield Spectrum Fund
Crossover bonds offer investors some of the benefits of high yield and investment grade bonds.
The recent market turmoil has improved the relative value of high yield bonds and we believe provides an attractive entry point.
Narrow yield dispersion is a major factor in high yield bond investing today.
As the economic recovery gains a firmer footing, it should be supportive for high yield returns in a “medium yield” environment.
The global high yield market had strong performance in 2012, and European high yield outperformed U.S. high yield.
