Ratings are assigned to portfolio securities utilizing ratings from Moody's, Fitch, and Standard & Poor's rating agencies and applying the following hierarchy: If all three agencies provide a rating, the middle rating (after dropping the highest and lowest ratings) is assigned; if two of the three agencies rate a security, the lower of the two is assigned. Cash and other portfolio assets that are not securities are not included in the categories mentioned above. Ratings are shown in the S&P scale. All ratings are subject to change.
Average Coupon: Average Coupon is the equivalent exposure weighted coupon of all interest bearing instruments as a percent of the total equivalent exposure of all fixed income holdings, including short term and interest rate derivatives which have coupons. Coupons are netted for securities with a payable and receivable leg. Non-accruing securities are treated as having a coupon equal to zero.
Average Effective Duration: Average Effective Duration is a measure of how much a bond’s price is likely to fluctuate with general changes in interest rates, e.g., if rates rise 1.00%, a bond with a 5-year duration is likely to lose about 5.00% of its value.
Average Effective Maturity: Average effective maturity is a weighted average of maturity of the bonds held in a portfolio, taking into account any prepayments, puts, and adjustable coupons which may shorten the maturity. Longer-maturity funds are generally considered more interest-rate sensitive than shorter maturity funds.
Yield to Worst: The weighted average yield-to-worst of all portfolio holdings. The yield-to-worst is computed by using the lower of either yield-to-maturity or the yield-to-call on every possible call date. Essentially the yield-to-worst is a bond's yield-to-maturity under the least desirable bond repayment pattern under the assumption that bond market yields are unchanged.
