A multi-sector strategy fully loaded with credit risk.

Senior Analyst



MainStay MacKay Strategic Bond's managers completed a three-year restructuring plan for their team in 2021, which had led to meaningful staff turnover. The turnover has stopped in 2022, but the support team here is still slimmer than those at rival fund houses. Additionally, the highly flexible process has historically led to a heavy dose of credit risk in the strategy, from both corporate and securitized bonds, and middling returns. The fund earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for the I and R6 share classes and Negative for the remaining share classes.
