While he has experienced periods of underperformance, he has always bounced back with top-tier returns – earning him his deserved reputation as one of the great fixed income managers.

Mr. Fuss says that while the biggest opportunities are over for now, he thinks the fixed income market is almost back to what might be considered normal, which means he still sees buying opportunities for selective high-yield investors.


Dr. David Krause, AIM program director, and over a dozen Marquette students are once again honored to be attending the event and sharing time with Mr. Fuss. “We again plan on attending the CFA luncheon and expect that Mr. Fuss will talk about market instability, the impact of the Trump administration, how he feels about rising interest rates, Federal Reserve policy and if junk bonds are worth buying now. It is always a treat to be with Dan Fuss – he is a true legend in the investment world. Just think - the AIM students will have met with Warren Buffett and Dan Fuss within the past two months!”
