Alpha: Alpha measures the difference between a fund’s actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk (as measured by beta).

Comparison between Regional Finances and the IG Corporate Bond Market: The regional financials, or corporate bonds issued by regional and community banks, are unsecured corporate bonds issued at either the holding company or bank level. The bonds are backed by the full faith and credit of the company/issuer and the failure of the issuer to make a single interest or principal payment would be a default of the issuer (in this case the issuer is the regional or community bank). Most of the regional and community corporate bonds are investment grade rated by Kroll Ratings Agency and the issuance sizes tend to be smaller than typical IG corporate bonds. IG corporate bonds are unsecured bonds issued by investment grade companies.
