About Risk: 

An imbalance in supply and demand in the income market may result in valuation uncertainties and greater volatility, less liquidity, widening credit spreads and a lack of price transparency in the market. There can be no assurance that the liquidation of collateral securing an investment will satisfy the issuer’s obligation in the event of nonpayment or that collateral can be readily liquidated. The ability to realize the benefits of any collateral may be delayed or limited. Investments in income securities may be affected by changes in the creditworthiness of the issuer and are subject to the risk of nonpayment of principal and interest. The value of income securities also may decline because of real or perceived concerns about the issuer’s ability to make principal and interest payments. Borrowing to increase investments (leverage) will exaggerate the effect of any increase or decrease in the value of Fund investments. Investments rated below investment grade (typically referred to as “junk”) are generally subject to greater price volatility and illiquidity than higher-rated investments. As interest rates rise, the value of certain income investments is likely to decline. Bank loans are subject to prepayment risk. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. Changes in the value of investments entered for hedging purposes may not match those of the position being hedged. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks.

This data reflects distributions paid on Fund shares held for the full calendar year and is not predictive of the tax character of current or future distributions. Fund shareholders should refer to the individual IRS Form 1099-DIVs provided to them shortly after each year-end to determine the appropriate federal income tax treatment of the distributions they receive. Eaton Vance is not responsible for any errors in tax reporting that may result from using the above data. Non-qualified ordinary dividends are subject to federal income tax at ordinary rates. Qualified dividends and capital gains distributions are taxable at long-term capital gains rates. Nondividend distributions, also known as return of capital distributions, are not subject to current federal income tax. Instead, the tax cost basis of each shareholder receiving a return of capital distribution is reduced by the amount of the distribution.

A Word On The Markets as of Dec 31, 2016

With technical conditions continuing to swing in favor of the loan market, the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan Index6 (the Index) delivered a 2.26% total return for the three month period ended December 31, 2016. While broader financial markets dealt with uncertainty surrounding the U.S. presidential election, the loan market generally shrugged off the political shocks. Instead, loans benefited from continued growth in structured product formation and an acceleration of retail mutual fund inflows, as rising Treasury yields drove investors to the floating rate loan asset class. Quarterly results for the period were nearly split between coupon income and market value return. Monthly returns during the period were 0.83%, 0.26% and 1.16% for October, November and December, respectively. For the year, the Index experienced its second strongest performance on record, with full year returns of 10.16%.

As in the previous two quarters, aggregate demand outstripped net supply expansion during the period. Quarterly loan volume increased modestly alongside demand, with outstandings ending December approximately $7 billion higher than where they began the quarter. On the demand side of the equation, structured product growth was $25.7 billion for the period, and retail fund inflows surged as the quarter wore on. Lipper reported that funds that report weekly flows took in over $5 billion in net subscriptions since the U.S. presidential election on November 8, including a $1.5 billion net gain the week ending December 14, the day the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points.

On fundamentals, the par weighted default rate ended the year at a 10 month low of 1.58% on a last 12 months basis. The default rate remained low from a historical perspective, with about two thirds of these modest defaults having come by way of commodity related issuers over this period — which collectively account for a limited corner of the overall market. From this respect, the majority of the asset class outstanding continued to remain in relatively benign shape fundamentally.

Performance Summary 

Eaton Vance Senior Income Trust (EVF) outperformed the Index at net asset value for the quarter.

  • The Funds' modest exposure to metals & mining and commodity-related areas benefited performance relative to the Index.
  • The Funds remained underweight to the better-performing, higher-credit risk tiers of the market, although the limited weight of these segments kept the relative impact limited.
  • Employment of investment leverage, a strategic element of the Funds' strategies, aided performance as it amplified the positive results of the Funds' underlying portfolios.
  • An allocation to high-yield bonds detracted from performance relative to the Index, as the high-yield market generally underperformed loans.

Fund Factsas of Dec 31, 2016

Performance Inception 10/30/1998

Contributors 

Oil & gas and metals & mining loans were the greatest beneficiaries of the quarter's bullish tone, returning a robust 14.20% and 12.53%, respectively. As a result, the Funds' modest overweights to these segments served as a relative tailwind — as did security selection in these areas.

  • Employment of investment leverage, a strategic element of the Funds' strategies, aided performance as it amplified the positive results of the Funds' underlying portfolios.

Detractors 

Quarterly returns by credit tier were 1.35%, 2.18%, 8.81% and 8.52% for loans rated BB, B, CCC and D, respectively.7 In a similar vein, second-lien loans also outperformed, returning 5.41% for the quarter, compared with 2.14% for first liens. The Funds remained underweight to the better-performing, higher-credit risk tiers of the market, although the limited weight of these segments kept the relative impact limited.

  • The Funds' allocation to high-yield bonds — a strategic element of its investment strategy — aided performance relative to the Index, as high-yield bonds outperformed loans for the quarter. The Index does not include high-yield bonds.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

We remain constructive on the credit risk profile underlying the loan market. While the default rate is a lagging indicator, the distress ratio — defined as the percentage of performing loans trading below $80 — can often paint a clearer picture about the path of forward default probabilities. Through December, the ratio was 3.13%, the lowest level since June 2015. Only 1.8% traded below $70, a level considered to be higher in default risk. Overall, we believe defaults are likely to grind modestly higher in the coming year but remain low and below average in an historical context. This view aligns with the latest S&P/LCD quarterly survey of loan managers, with the December report showing a consensus default rate expectation of 2.4% for the end of 2017.

Market pricing indicates positive-but-nonetheless very limited price appreciation potential from here. The average price of the Index ended December at $98.1, with 68% of performing loans bid at par or higher. With the price "upside" of the asset class having largely played out in 2016, upside potential in 2017 is shaping up to take its place in the coupon component of returns — as the Fed projects three quarter-point rate hikes.

With 3-month LIBOR at the average floor in the loan market and 1-month LIBOR at 0.77%, the higher income potential that may follow the next Fed rate hike will likely continue to draw investor attention. Looking ahead, we believe the market's technical balance remains tipped toward one of strength, and we think it's likely that asset class buyership grows as investors brace for the likelihood of higher interest rates. Though unexpected events can always translate to volatility in the shorter run, we think loans are set up well given competing investment opportunities across the capital markets.
