The investment objective of the Ultra Short Bond Strategy is to seek current income consistent with the preservation of capital.
The strategy normally invests 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 U.S. and foreign issuers
- Corporate debt of U.S. and foreign issuers
- Money market instruments
The strategy invests primarily in investment-grade debt obligations, but may invest up to 10% of its net assets in non-investment-grade obligations. Non-investment-grade obligations, at the time of purchase, are generally rated at least B or higher by at least one major rating agency or, if unrated, determined by Baird Advisors to be comparable in quality to the rated obligations.
