Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance is for the stated time period only; due to market volatility, the Fund's current performance may be lower or higher than quoted. The Fund's performance at market price will differ from its results at NAV. Returns are historical and are calculated by determining the percentage change in net asset value or market price (as applicable) with all distributions reinvested and includes management fees and other expenses. Until the reinvestment of Fund distributions is completed, returns are calculated using the lower of the net asset value or market price of the shares on the distribution ex date. Once the reinvestment is complete, returns are calculated using the average reinvestment price. Performance less than or equal to one year is cumulative.

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.

Insights & Analysis

Commentary

A Word On The Markets as of Jun 30, 2016

The floating-rate loan market experienced a robust rally in the second quarter, with the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan Index (the Index)6 returning 2.92% for the three-month period ended June 30, 2016. Building on the significant March gains fueled by stabilizing commodity prices and renewed investor confidence, the second quarter continued the market's momentum with outsized performances in April and May before cooling in June. Monthly returns for the quarter were 1.99%, 0.89% and 0.02% for April, May and June, respectively. Early quarter results were driven by continued firmness in technical conditions, with investor demand outstripping net supply expansion. Later, a shift to investor caution, a return of modest retail outflows and the unexpected late-month "Brexit" news took their toll in June. Notwithstanding the soft ending to the quarter, loans maintained strong year-to-date results: the Index returned 4.51% by the mid-year mark. This outpaced stocks, as represented by the S&P 500 Index7, though returns trailed the rebound in high-yield bonds, the latter of which underperformed loans by a wide margin in 2015.

Loan market supply expanded just modestly during the period, with Index outstandings moving mostly sideways to $886 billion through June. Though new-issue loan volume was robust throughout the quarter, net supply was limited by heavy repayments. Meanwhile, structured product creation totaled $17.5 billion, a significant pickup from first quarter levels, while mutual fund flows were effectively flat for the period. The net result of these inputs was a quarter marked by a significant technical surplus, and rising prices were a byproduct of this firm condition. To be sure, second-quarter Index results included a 1.65% market value gain, with the average price of the Index ending June at $93.2, up from $91.5 at the end of the first quarter.

On default activity, the par-weighted default rate ended the quarter at a rate of 1.97% on a last-12-months basis, up modestly from 1.75% in March. The default rate still remains low from a historical perspective. Unsurprisingly, more than 70% of defaults over this period have come by way of commodity-related issuers, which collectively account for but a limited corner of the market. From this respect, the majority of the loan market continued to remain in relatively benign shape fundamentally, with current default rates – and expectations for future default rates published by S&P/LCD in June – tracking below the asset class' long-term averages.

Performance Summary 

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

  • The Funds' focus on larger, more liquid loans aided performance relative to the Index. The larger and more actively traded loans included within the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan 100 Index8 outpaced a majority of the overall market.
  • 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.
  • Employment of investment leverage, a strategic element of the Funds' strategies, aided performance as it amplified the positive results of the Funds' underlying portfolios.
  • The Funds' underweight to second-lien loans and loans rated CCC and D detracted from relative results for the quarter, as these lower-quality areas of the loan market outperformed their higher-quality counterparts.9

Contributors 

The Funds' focus on larger, more liquid loans aided performance relative to the Index. The loan market experienced bifurcation by issuer size. The larger, more on-the-run loans included within the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan 100 Index outpaced a majority of the overall market.

  • 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.
  • Employment of investment leverage, a strategic element of the Funds' strategies, aided performance as it amplified the positive results of the Funds' underlying portfolios.
  • The Funds' exposure to metals & mining, steel and commodity-related areas benefited performance relative to the Index, as these areas rallied markedly.

Detractors 

The Funds' underweight to second-lien loans and loans rated CCC and D detracted from relative results for the quarter, as these lower-quality areas of the loan market outperformed their higher-quality counterparts.

  • The Funds' underweight to the utilities sector was a relative detractor. No exposure to the defaulted Energy Futures Holdings loan was the principal driver in this area.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

We remain constructive on the credit risk profile underlying the loan market. We believe defaults are likely to rise modestly but remain low, given that immediate maturities are limited, cash flow growth persists and the economy is performing with relative strength. What's more, the footprint of commodity-related issuers in the loan market is limited to low single-digit percentages. Though the low-default outlook assumes the absence of a major outside macroeconomic or liquidity shock, such an event is not our base case.

To us, the market appeared unlikely to keep pace with the return trajectory of the significant rally experienced in March, April and May. Even then however, we believed market pricing indicated modest upside potential. We believe June's relative softness adds to the opportunity in the asset class. The average price of the Index ended June at $93.20, implying default losses that we believe are unlikely.

With literally trillions of investor dollars now in negative-yielding government bonds and the yield on U.S. Treasurys again near record lows following Brexit, investors may continue to be drawn to the attractive yield of this floating-rate asset class. Looking ahead, we believe the market's technical balance remains delicately tipped toward one of strength, and thus the direction and magnitude of investor flows will be an important influence in the short run. Further out, the ability of the asset class to participate in a rising-rate environment may bode well for investors with heavier exposure in duration sensitive positions.
