Columbia Floating Rate had been run by Lynn Hopton and Yvonne Stevens since its inception in 2006. Their departure at the end of March 2018 was followed by the retirement of a longtime comanager and head of the team less than a year later and the change of lead manager at the end of 2020. That supports a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral across most share classes, though its expensive C share class earns a Negative rating.
