1The information provided above pertains to the master fund. A bond with lower duration has lower volatility comparatively to a bond with higher duration. Total return is represented by Yield to Maturity.
2Yield to Maturity (YTM) is defined as the total anticipated return on a bond if it is held until its maturity date. The YTM calculation takes into account the bond's periodic interest payments, the principal amount returned at maturity, and the bond's current market price. It provides an estimate of the bond's overall return, assuming that all interest payments are reinvested at the same rate as the YTM. It is important to note that YTM is not the total return of a mutual fund investment.
3The master fund's Yield to Maturity (YTM) is in US dollars.
4The management fee of the master fund is included in the calculation.
