Our investment approach

Our fixed income investment philosophy centers around three principal tenets:

Robust research process

To meet the demands of a globally integrated world, our robust research process connects our global overview with the insight of regional specialists.

Diversification of alpha sources

  • We diversify by time horizon, and by exploiting the full opportunity set: credit beta, credit sector, choice of security, duration, yield curve, and country allocation.
  • Further diversification comes from using a blend of judgement and models, combining top down macro inputs with bottom up security selection, as we seek to generate consistency of credit alpha.

Risk control

Risk control is an integral part of the fixed income investment process. It is not simply an adjunct.
