Senior Analyst



Putnam Global Income is run by an experienced group of portfolio managers with a wide range of sector expertise. However, it is losing a longtime manager in March 2022, and the team’s execution of its somewhat complex investment process has led to mediocre returns relative to its Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index benchmark over the past five years ending Jan. 31, 2022. Most of the share classes of the Putnam Global Income Trust mutual fund retain a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral, while its most expensive B and C share classes have retained a Negative rating.
