Portfolio Positioningas of 3/31/2022

  • Over the quarter, we added to the portfolio’s bank loan allocation as we continue to favor floating rate credit risk. We believe the asset class will continue to benefit from strong fundamentals and robust technicals.
  • We added to agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) over the quarter - closing some of our underweight relative to the benchmark and peers. This decision was a relative value trade on recent weakness/underperformance of agency MBS versus other fixed income sectors. However, we plan on remaining underweight agency MBS as the technical backdrop is poor for the asset class given the Fed is likely to shift from a net buyer to net seller by year end.
  • In addition, we added to non-agency RMBS - both non-qualified mortgages and credit risk transfer securities (CRT). We believe strong buyer and refi activity will continue supporting the non-QM market. Also, CRT securities provide a liquid source to gain residential housing credit exposure through mortgages that have been underwritten by government sponsored entities (GSE). Both allocations provide strong risk-adjusted carry, in our opinion.
  • We used the sales of high-quality asset-backed securities (ABS) to fund the purchases of these additions over the quarter.

Class A  Except as noted below, returns with sales charges reflect a maximum sales charge of 5.75% for equity funds, 2.25% for all tax-free income funds, fixed income funds and multi-asset class funds. There are also ongoing 12b-1 service fees (and, in certain cases, distribution fees).

Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed before the first day of the month in which the one year anniversary of the purchase falls. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.

Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, effective 12/1/2021, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed before the first day of the month of the 18-month anniversary of the purchase. Fund shares purchased without a sales charge prior to 12/1/2021 may be assessed a CDSC of 1% if they are redeemed before the first day of the month in which the one-year anniversary of the purchase falls. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.
