News From CCF-LA | May 26, 2020
From the Desk of the CFO
Since early April, we’ve experienced a slow upward trend in the markets, which maintain a “wait and see” attitude on how quickly, broadly, and safely economies can reopen amid the COVID-19 concerns. Our funds have closely paralleled this cautiously hopeful trend toward recovery. The April YTD saw the Balanced Pool return improved to -3.35 percent from the -7.72 percent at the end of March. Likewise, the Intermediate Fund YTD return improved to -7.7 percent by the end of April compared to March’s -14.69 percent. We continue to be vigilant as we maintain our commitment to a well-strategized, long-term position. As always, our client team is available to respond to any questions or requests.
