Citadel Nontraditional Bond

Citadel Accounts: Taxable Bond


The Citadel Nontraditional Bond Account pursues strategies divergent in one or more ways from conventional practice in the broader bond-fund universe. The portfolio manager tactically manages short to mid-term bonds from many different economies in order to minimize volatility normally associated with changes in global interest rates. The account may utilize credit default swaps and other fixed income derivatives to a significant level in order to achieve its goal, which is to produce current income and reduce short term volatility.

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.
