A Loomis Sayles Fund Plays Offense

News summary by MFWire's editors

Rick Raczkowski and Peter Palfrey, PMs of the Loomis Sayles Core Plus Bond Fund [see profile], [see profile], have reportedly shelved their defensive stance for an offensive approach to the fixed income market.

The fund, which invests in bonds, treasuries and asset-backed securities, started last year on the long end of the corporate bond market but has tweaked its portfolio to a 20 percent to 30 percent respective split between high-yield and corporate bonds, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Automotive loan maker Ally Financial Inc., paper-product company Georgia Pacific Corp. and Sallie Mae are current names in the fund's portfolio.

Raczkowski told the pub that the pair took a more agressive approach to the market in order to "capture yield in the front end of the curve and reduce sensitivity to interest-rate-spread volatility".
