    • Spreads on loans are wider than historical averages. Loans are one of the few fixed income investments trading at discount. Loans rank higher in capital structure and in event of default generally have a highe rate of recovery. These are some reasons to consider bank loan funds regardless of where interest rates are or are headed.

      • The 30yr is NOT an comparable benchmark & a "Good Job" for .70 bps isn't anything to cheer over, especially when underperforming the LL-Benchmark & having a yield thats NOT "High" per se, as compared to BKLN, SNLN, or High Yield funds, with similar rated debt instruments paying 200+ bps or more. The investment philosphy needs to adapt to the market & be maleable. Favoring a Cap size company, cash horde or credit quality can have benchmark swinging ramifications.

        This fund theoretically should thrive in a rising rate environment, but until then & especially after '08s feeble performance, I'm ambivalent....
