Management Commentary

“Although our International Equity strategies experienced elevated net outflows during the first quarter, they solidly outperformed, which has continued strongly into the current quarter,” said Richard Pell, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. “Elsewhere, amid the first quarter’s more ‘risk-on’ environment, our High Yield strategy generated healthy net inflows. And our Multi-, Small- and Microcap US Equity strategies produced exceptional performance, enhancing their potential to become more meaningful contributors to our business over time.”
