Fund Description

The Loomis Sayles Bond Fund Institutional Class (LSBDX) is a low-cost, actively managed, multisector bond fund that looks to use current income and capital appreciation to create a high total return. As a multisector bond fund, LSBDX can invest in a wide range of IOUs, spanning Treasuries, MBS, junk bonds, investment-grade corporates, floating-rate bank loans, emerging-market debt and even preferred stocks and convertible bonds. The fund’s managers use credit intensive research to uncover bonds that are trading for below their real values.

As a “go anywhere” bond fund, LSBDX is a perfect compliment to a broad bond index portfolio. The fund is internally managed by Loomis Sayles & Company L.P.
