2 Core Bond Funds With a Knack for Navigating the Markets
Management's strong background in credit analysis has enabled Silver-rated Western Asset Core Bond and Core Plus Bond to achieve impressive long-term results.
Sumit Desai: The team that manages the Western Asset Core Bond (WAPIX) and Western Asset Core Plus Bond (WACIX) funds earned our 2014 Fixed-Income Fund Manager of the Year award and have followed up their strong performance last year with another strong year in 2015.
Both of these funds earn a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver thanks to the team-based approach they take to managing the portfolios. In our opinion, the team behind these funds has shown a knack for understanding market trends and oftentimes takes the opposite side of consensus bets.
