Remaining Patient & Diversified with Global Allocation

The Global Allocation Team discusses the power of a patient, flexible strategy that can invest across the capital structure.

  • As the world economy continues its slow recovery from the worst of the COVID-19 crisis, the Loomis Sayles global allocation team believes that patience and diversification remain the order of the day.
  • The team’s flexible approach allows for more concentration in stocks when they believe stocks offer a better return opportunity.
  • In light of the pandemic, the team has taken a more defensive fixed income posture, avoiding negative interest yielding debt.

Risks to consider
Equity securities are volatile and can decline significantly in response to broad market and economic conditions.

Fixed income securities may carry one or more of the following risks: credit, interest rate (as interest rates rise bond prices usually fall), inflation and liquidity.

Foreign and emerging market securities may be subject to greater political, economic, environmental, credit, currency and information risks. Foreign securities may be subject to higher volatility than US securities, due to varying degrees of regulation and limited liquidity. These risks are magnified in emerging markets.

Below investment grade fixed income securities may be subject to greater risks (including the risk of default) than other fixed-income securities.

Currency exchange rates between the US dollar and foreign currencies may cause the value of the fund’s investments to decline.

Before investing, consider the fund's investment objectives, risk, charges, and expenses. Visit or call 800-225-5478 for a prospectus or a summary prospectus containing this and other information. Read it carefully.
