GW&K ESG Bond Fund  (MGFIX)

Fund Notice

Effective March 19, 2021, the subadviser of AMG Managers Loomis Sayles Bond Fund (the "Fund") changed from Loomis, Sayles & Company, L.P. to GW&K Investment Management, LLC ("GW&K"). The appointment of GW&K is pursuant to an interim subadvisory agreement in anticipation of shareholder approval of a definitive subadvisory agreement. Also effective March 19, 2021, the Fund changed its name to AMG GW&K ESG Bond Fund and changed its investment objective, principal investment strategies and principal risks. For more information regarding these and other changes to the Fund, please see the Fund's prospectus.

This is part of a larger strategic business initiative to transition to a fund lineup entirely sub-advised by AMG Affiliates. We believe clients will benefit from a streamlined platform wholly focused on AMG Affiliates’ high-conviction investment offerings, including fee reductions, subject to shareholder approval, across all the strategies involved in the transition. Please see this Fund’s prospectus for further details on the fee reduction.

The performance data shown represents past performance. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. The investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. For performance information through the most recent month end please call 800.835.3879. From time to time, the advisor has waived fees or reimbursed expenses, which may have resulted in higher returns. The listed returns and yields of the Fund are net of expenses, and the returns and yields of the indices exclude expenses. For time periods where the fund inception date preceded the benchmark, the benchmark data will not be shown.

Objective

The Fund seeks to generate income and capital appreciation by primarily investing in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities.

Why Consider

  • Provides investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities
  • Invests in companies that GW&K believes are leaders in effectively addressing exposure to ESG risks through robust business practices, policies and programs or companies that have more limited exposure to ESG risks.
  • The Fund employs a multi-sector approach designed to take advantage of the relative valuations among distinct bond sectors and provide greater opportunities to generate income and capital appreciation, while helping to manage risk in changing economic environments

Investment Approach

Investment Approach

GW&K ESG Bond Fund

GW&K believes that a multi-sector approach takes advantage of the relative valuations among distinct bond sectors and provides greater opportunities to generate income and capital appreciation, while helping to manage risk in changing economic environments. The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities. When deciding which securities to buy or sell, typically, GW&K:

  • Incorporates ESG factors among many other fundamental, technical and valuation factors
  • Seeks companies that maintain sustainable competitive advantages and expect to benefit from emerging cyclical or secular drivers
  • Seeks to identify companies that are undervalued due to temporary or discrete events
  • Identifies companies that it believes are leaders in effectively addressing exposure to ESG risks through robust business practices, policies and programs or companies that have more limited exposure to ESG risks
  • Uses top-down research that focuses on managing: duration, yield curve, credit quality, volatility and liquidity
  • Uses bottom-up research that focuses on: fundamental analysis, valuation analysis and technical analysis
