Brown Advisory Strategic Bond Fund (BIABX) Profile
The Brown Advisory Strategic Bond Fund (formerly, Brown Advisory Tactical Bond Fund) seeks to achieve capital appreciation and income with a low correlation to interest rate movements.
The Fund seeks to achieve the investment objective by investing at least 80% of the value of its net assets in a broad set of fixed income securities, such as U.S. Government securities, corporate fixed income securities, high yield bonds, bank loans and collateralized loan obligations, tax-exempt municipal bonds, U.S. Treasury bonds, Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS), mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities, and derivatives.

The Fund is not managed to a benchmark. This flexibility allows the managers to invest in fixed-income securities of any maturity and/or credit quality rating. Under normal circumstances, the Fund's portfolio will seek to have a duration of one to three years.
Effective October 31, 2014 the Tactical Bond Fund became the Strategic Bond Fund.
