US core plus

The goal of our core plus fixed income strategy is to maximize risk-adjusted total returns by investing primarily in investment grade securities while having the latitude to add attractive non-benchmark exposure.


Core fixed income portfolio with scope for manager to demonstrate skill through bottom-up security selection, sector strategy and non-benchmark holdings.

Robust process and risk controls: the strategy's managers follow an established investment process which is monitored and overseen by an independent risk team.

Experienced, well-resourced team: the strategy is managed by an experienced team with what we believe to be an excellent long-term track record, supported by a research team with substantial experience in investment grade corporate, high yield, emerging market and securitized sectors.
