Jim Fletcher, chair of LBCF's investment committee commented: "It has been a very strong year so far which has been fantastic for our donors and non-profit partners. We hold a straightforward mix of domestic and international equity and fixed income index funds which gives us extremely broad diversification at a very low cost. In the equity pool, our developing markets investment was the top performer over nine months, up over 17%. On the fixed income side, our high yield bond investment led the way, up 12%, helped to a large extent by a stabilization of oil prices and a relatively healthy economy."
