The Tactical Fixed Income strategy returned 0.35% versus the Merrill Lynch 3-month US Treasury Bill return of 1.99% in the second quarter. In pursuing this strategy, WCM tactically allocates across a broad range of fixed income sectors to earn a high income oriented return with a moderate level of risk.
The WCM Short Duration High Yield strategy returned -3.48% versus the Bloomberg US High Yield 1-5 Year Cash Pay Index return of -7.04% in the second quarter. Our Short Duration High Yield strategy invests in a diversified portfolio of high yield corporate bonds which have maturities of less than five years and meet our credit research standards.
The WCM Municipal Fixed Income strategy returned -1.58% versus the Bloomberg Municipal Bond Index return of -2.94% in the second quarter. This strategy invests in all major investment grade sectors of the municipal bond market including general obligation, revenue, special purpose bonds, and tax increment financing bonds.
The Core Growth strategy returned -13.03% versus the MSCI ACWI Index return of -16.32% in the second quarter. The objective of WCM’s Core Sector Aggressive Growth Model is to maximize long-term capital appreciation.

The Core Conservative Strategy returned -7.45% versus the Bloomberg 1-3 Yr Credit Index return of -0.91% in the second quarter. The objective of WCM’s Core Conservative Strategy is long-term preservation of capital.

The Core Sector Aggressive Growth strategy returned -16.23% versus the MSCI ACWI Index return of -16.32% in the second quarter. The objective of WCM’s Core Sector Aggressive Growth Model is to maximize long-term capital appreciation.
