Definition of the Composite
Dolan McEniry High Yield is a fixed income investment product benchmarked against the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Corporate High Yield Ba/B Index. In this strategy, the firm utilizes entirely U.S. corporate high yield bonds; however, the strategy will invest in U.S. corporate investment grade bonds when appropriate. Dolan McEniry High Yield is approximately 90% U.S. corporate high yield bonds and 10% U.S. corporate investment grade bonds. The Dolan McEniry High Yield Composite was established and created on September 30, 2015.
Non-fee paying accounts represented less than 2% of the composite assets for all periods shown after July 31, 2016. Performance results prior to July 31, 2016 are derived from the returns of fully discretionary separate accounts made up of the firm’s own capital. Due to the internal nature of the funds, no management fees have been charged to the accounts throughout their lifespans. There were 0.2% non-fee paying accounts in the composite as of December 31, 2019.
Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Corporate High Yield Ba/B Index
The Index is the Ba/B component of the Bloomberg Barclays US Corporate High Yield Index. The Index measures the USD-denominated, high yield, fixed-rate corporate bond market. Bonds from issuers with an emerging markets country of risk, based on the indices’ EM country definition, are excluded. The corporate sectors include industrial, financial institutions, and utility. Bonds must have at least one year until final maturity.
Intra-month cash flows from interest and principal payments contribute to monthly Index returns but are not reinvested at a short-term reinvestment rate between rebalance dates. At each rebalancing, cash is effectively reinvested into the returns universe for the following month so that Index results over two or more months reflect monthly compounding. One cannot invest directly in an Index.
Gross returns are presented gross of management fees, custodial fees, and withholding taxes, but net of direct trading expenses. Net-of-fee returns are net of actual investment management fees and direct trading expenses. Prior to 12/31/2018, net-of-fee returns were based on a model 0.60% (60bps) investment management fee applied monthly and direct trading expense. All returns are based in U.S. dollars and computed using a time-weighted total return. Composite returns are asset weighted individual portfolios computed monthly. Returns for periods exceeding 12 months are annualized. The Dolan McEniry High Yield Composite includes both price performance and coupon/dividend income as does the Bloomberg Barclays U.S Corporate High Yield Ba/B Index. Results reflect the reinvestment of dividends, interest and other earnings. The Dolan McEniry performance reflected above is not necessarily indicative of future results and, as a composite of different accounts, does not necessarily reflect the exact performance of any specific account. Additional information regarding the firm’s policies and procedures for calculating and reporting performance returns is available upon request.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investing is speculative and involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Historical returns should not be used as the primary basis for investment decisions. This product should be considered based on the suitability of its strategy in relation to return objectives, risk tolerances, and other investments.
