Citadel Long Government

Citadel Accounts: Taxable Bond


The Citadel Long Government Account holds at least 90% of its allocation in bonds backed by the U.S. government, or backed by government-linked agencies. The portfolio manager focuses on holding bonds that minimizes credit risk. However, the account is not risk-free, because it exhibits durations of typically more than 6.0 years; thus, they are more sensitive to interest rates. Long term is defined as 125% of the three-year average effective duration of the MCBI.
