Summary

Summary

What is the Inflation Focused Fund?

The Fund seeks to deliver total returns that exceed the rate of inflation in the U.S. over a full inflation cycle and current income by combining investments in inflation swaps with a portfolio of short duration credit. 
 

EXPERIENCED INVESTMENT TEAM

The strategy is managed through a collaboration among 40+ investment professionals in portfolio management, credit research, and trading.

HIGHER INCOME POTENTIAL WITH LOWER DURATION

By utilizing short duration credit, the strategy generates the highest income stream in the Morningstar category with one-third the duration of the average TIPS-based portfolio.

TRUE INFLATION PROTECTION

By using inflation swaps to hedge exposure to investor expectations of future inflation, the strategy isolates inflation risk with much less nominal interest rate exposure than the Morningstar category.  As such, the strategy is designed to do well when inflation expectation increase.

Portfolio Positioning as of 3/31/2022

  • Over the quarter, we added exposure to CMBS as U.S. commercial real estate delinquencies continue to fall from 2020 levels and the asset class is providing attractive carry relative to like-rated corporate bonds. Specifically, we focused on adding to industrial-backed single-borrower deals and multi-family commercial real estate collateralized-loan obligations (CRE CLO).
  • We also added to bank loans over the quarter. 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 high yield, non-energy commodities including metals and mining issues as we continue to look to hedge inflationary risks. Banks, financials, and energy continue to be the portfolio’s largest overweights within corporate credit.
  • We decreased the portfolio’s exposure to U.S. Treasuries over the period.
