August 8, 2012
Baird Funds President Mary Ellen Stanek was recently interviewed by MoneyLife's Chuck Jaffe about Baird's bond investing strategy.

Listen to the interview.

Yield curve roll-down is the return component associated with the shortening duration of a bond with the passage of time, accompanied by the lower yield required of a shorter duration bond (assuming a normal upward sloping curve). This strategy may help protect principal in a rising interest rate environment and allow an investor to capture higher yields. There are risks involved with this strategy including, but not limited to, changes in interest rates, liquidity, credit quality, volatility and duration.
