Floating rate credit seeking to mitigate interest-rate changes
Floating-rate loans seek to offer a hedge against uncertain interest rates, as well as above-average yield opportunities.
The DWS floating rate team seeks to invest only in loans we believe will mature at par—not investing in overly-risky names for short-term performance.
We believe in delivering benchmark-level risk by overweighting credits maturing in the 3-7 year range and reducing exposure to the most speculative names.
Without a waiver, returns would have been lower and any rankings/ratings might have been less favorable.
