The investment objective of the Intermediate Bond Strategy is to seek an annual rate of return greater than the annual rate of total return of the Bloomberg Barclays Intermediate U.S. Government/Credit Bond Index.
The strategy normally invests in at least 80% of its net assets in the following types of U.S. dollar-denominated debt obligations:
- U.S. government and other public sector entities
- Asset-backed and mortgage-backed obligations of the U.S. and foreign issuers
- Corporate debt of U.S. and foreign issuers
The strategy only invests in debt obligations rated investment-grade at the time of purchase by at least one major rating agency or, if unrated, determined by Baird Advisors to be investment-grade.To learn more, contact one of our investment professionals.
