Expert perspectives on fixed income
Is now the time to reduce the cash allocation in your portfolio? History shows that the best entry points for bonds are often before the Fed starts cutting rates.
With yields near 15-year highs, bonds have resumed their role in portfolios as a tool for potential income, compelling risk-adjusted returns and diversification.
Higher income has reduced near-term risk and is setting up the bond market for a run of attractive long-term returns.
Political brinksmanship over the debt limit is poised to push the Treasury to the edge.

While the GNMA Income Fund invests in securities guaranteed by the U.S. Government as to timely payments of interest and principal, the Fund shares are Not Insured or Guaranteed.
The principal risks are generally those attributable to bond investing. All investments in bonds are subject to market risks as well as issuer, credit, prepayment, extension, and other risks. The value of an investment in a fund is not guaranteed and will fluctuate. Market risk is the risk that securities may decline in value due to factors affecting the securities markets or particular industries. Bonds have fixed principal and return if held to maturity, but may fluctuate in the interim. Generally, when interest rates rise, bond prices fall. Bonds with longer maturities tend to be more sensitive to changes in interest rates. Issuer risk is the risk that the value of a security may decline for reasons specific to the issuer, such as changes in its financial condition.
Past Performance is no guarantee of future results.
