TD Asset Management has long had one of the most respected fixed-income teams on the street and has consistently delivered returns that are in line with the FTSE/TMX Canadian Bond Universe, with comparable levels of volatility. A good example is the TD Canadian Core Plus Bond Fund, which is very similar to the highly-regarded TD Canadian Bond Fund. The main difference is that the Core Plus offering allows the managers the ability to invest up to 30% of the fund in “non-core” investments such as high-yield bond and investment-grade global bonds. Let’s have a look at how this strategy has worked.

U.S. stock markets closed Friday with slim losses on the day, but advanced on the week as President Trump announced he would be releasing a “massive tax cut” package next week. Markets have been generally leery of the Trump Administration’s policy announcements, particularly after the recent failure of the bill to replace Obamacare to make it to a vote in the House of Representatives. In addition, economists are expecting a softening of economic growth in the first quarter with next Friday’s release of quarterly GDP numbers. The S&P 500 Composite Index advanced 0.9% on the week, while the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 1.8%. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index meanwhile gained a modest 0.5% on the week, as crude oil prices softened in the wake of growing U.S. production and the lack of any evidence that purported Opec production cuts are having any impact on prices at all. The price of gold also softened on the week, as geopolitical concerns faded from the headlines
