See RATING tab for calculations of ALTAR Score™
Estimate of fund sensitivity to interest rate changes based on modified duration and convexity adjustment applied to underlying bonds. Note: Less meaningful for inflation-indexed bonds.
Adds expected inflation to real YTM for inflation-linked bonds so that all instruments are compared on a nominal basis
Weighted-average term to maturity of the cash flows from a bond. All else being equal, bonds of longer duration are more sensitive to changes in interest rates than bonds of shorter duration.
