Citadel Multisector Bond

Citadel Accounts: Taxable Bond


The Citadel Multi-Sector Bond Account seeks current income by diversifying its assets among several fixed-income sectors, such as U.S. government obligations, U.S. corporate bonds, foreign bonds, and high-yield U.S. debt securities. The portfolio manager typically holds 35% to 65% of bond assets in securities that are not rated or are rated by a major agency such as Standard & Poor’s or Moody’s at the level of BB (considered speculative for taxable bonds) and below. The primary objective of the account is to provide current income vs. long-term capital appreciation.

Overall Risk

The risk rating is based on the account’s past performance as compared to mutual funds and/or ETFs within the same category. It represents a starting point from which investors evaluate if the core makes sense for their own risk tolerance, suitability, goals and objectives. It is not a buy or sell recommendation. There are many types of risk, including interest rate, market, political, and currency. Each type of risk can affect the value of the securities in your account.
