Floating Rate: Bank Loans at an Attractive Discount – 78 Cents!

March 2020 
David Marshak

The global impact of the coronavirus has caused steep financial declines and the bank-loan market has not been immune.

From our sub-adviser, Wellington Management
David Marshak
Managing Director, Portfolio Manager for the Hartford Floating Rate Fund and Hartford Floating Rate High Income Fund

 

In recent weeks, the growing concern around COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its potential impact on the global economy have caused steep declines in financial markets. 



Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • Loans can be difficult to value and less liquid than other types of debt instruments; they are also subject to nonpayment, collateral, bankruptcy, default, extension, prepayment, and insolvency risks. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, event, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • Investments in high-yield (“junk”) bonds involve greater risk of price volatility, illiquidity, and default than higher-rated debt securities.• Derivatives are generally more volatile and sensitive to changes in market or economic conditions than other securities; their risks include currency, leverage, liquidity, index, pricing, and counterparty risk.• Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than US investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. • Restricted securities may be more difficult to sell and price than other securities.
