Fund Description

The Loomis Sayles Bond Fund Retail Class (LSBRX) is a low-cost, actively managed multi-sector bond fund that seeks current income and capital appreciation for a high total return. As a multi-sector bond fund, LSBRX can invest in a wide range of IOU’s 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 do extensive credit research to uncover bonds that are trading for below their real values.

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