Selection Criteria

Endowus has selected the LionGlobal Short Duration Bond Fund for its diverse portfolio of high-quality domestic and international bonds, and its defensive low-duration positioning. The Fund previously was known as the LionGlobal Bond Fund and was then restructured to LionGlobal Short Duration Bond Fund in April 2013, investing primarily in low duration debt securities. Since then, the Fund has delivered attractive risk-adjusted returns, and has demonstrated good risk management during market volatilities.
