The Legal & General U.S. Credit Fund (the “Fund”) seeks to maximize total return through capital appreciation and current income. The Fund primarily invests in investment-grade fixed income securities with an average portfolio duration that is within 10% of the Fund’s benchmark, the Bloomberg Barclays US Credit Index.
LGIM America’s investment philosophy combines top-down macroeconomic considerations with bottom-up fundamental credit analysis that focuses on avoiding credit downgrades and defaults. Asset allocation decisions are formulated within the monthly global strategy process that produces a short- and long-term credit outlook. An experienced credit research team conducts comprehensive bottom-up issuer analysis, incorporating long-term views, fundamental analysis and material ESG factors alongside a strict valuation discipline. The Fund is constructed in a risk-controlled manner, focusing on sectors and securities where research can add the most value while tightly controlling duration and yield curve exposure.

There are risks involved in investing, including loss of principal. Asset allocation may not protect against market risk. Investment in the fund(s) is subject to the risks of the underlying funds. Bond Funds: Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. Mortgage-Backed Securities: Bonds and bond funds generally decrease in value as interest rates rise. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment and extension risk and therefore react differently to changes in interest rates than other bonds. Small movements in interest rates may quickly and significantly reduce the value of certain mortgage-backed securities. Municipal Bond: There is no guarantee that the Fund’s income will be exempt from federal or state income taxes. Capital gains, if any, are subject to capital gains tax. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise. Income from municipal bonds may be subject to the alternative minimum tax.
Indices are unmanaged and do not include the effect of fees. One cannot invest in an index. The Bloomberg Barclays US Credit Index measures the investment grade, US dollar-denominated, fixed-rate, taxable corporate and government-related bond markets.
