Bloomberg U.S. Credit 1-5 Year Index
This Index is the 1-5 year maturity component of the Bloomberg U.S. Credit Index. Must have a maturity from 1 up to (but not including) 5 years. The Index includes both corporate and non-corporate sectors. The corporate sectors are Industrial, Utility, and Finance, which include both U.S. and non-U.S. corporations. The non-corporate sectors are Sovereign, Supranational, Foreign Agency, and Foreign Local Government.
Bloomberg U.S. Credit 1-3 Year Index
This Index is the 1-3 year maturity component of the Bloomberg U.S. Credit Index. Must have a maturity from 1 up to (but not including) 3 years. The Index includes both corporate and non-corporate sectors. The corporate sectors are Industrial, Utility, and Finance, which include both U.S. and non-U.S. corporations. The non-corporate sectors are Sovereign, Supranational, Foreign Agency, and Foreign Local Government.
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 based on a model 0.40% (40bps) investment management fee applied monthly and direct trading expenses. 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 Short Duration Composite includes both price performance and coupon/dividend income as does the Bloomberg U.S. Credit 1-5 Year 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. Policies for valuing investments, calculating performance, and preparing GIPS Reports are 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.
