Columbia Quality Income’s approach courts credit and liquidity risks. The March 2020 sell-off was a real-life test, and the strategy bent but did not break. However, its overall risk level and complexity gives us pause, warranting a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for all share classes except C, which is rated Negative.
