    Fixed income

    Fixed income

    Insight offers a full spectrum of fixed income capabilities.
    For Australian investors, we highlight our global fixed income, strategic credit and emerging market corporate debt strategies.

    Performance through precision and diversification

    Insight’s fixed income investment philosophy aims to deliver consistent performance through precision and diversification.

    By precision, we mean targeting only the risks we consider attractive, while aiming to eliminate unintended risks. Through diversification we seek to add value through actively managing risk and return potential across a broad range of investment opportunities.

    Based on this approach, we aim to identify the most attractive risk-adjusted returns across the full range of fixed income opportunities, over a range of time horizons and market conditions.

    As a committed responsible investor, for over a decade, we have integrated environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into our decision-making processes.

    Our global sovereign strategy pursues returns ahead of the wider market, and has the flexibility to invest across government bonds through duration and yield curve positioning, as well as cross-country relative-value trades, using derivatives to help manage and target risk exposures with precision.

    Strategic credit
    Many institutional investors are seeking diversified exposure to global corporate debt in line with their specific risk and return objectives – free of benchmark-related confines.

    Our strategic credit approach is a long-term strategy with low turnover that seeks to buy and continually manage securities, relying on superior stock selection to achieve its objectives. Strategic credit

    This seeks to help investors own and design the risk composition of their portfolio and achieve greater certainty of outcome – making the most of Insight's experience and resources, including our long-standing focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk analysis.

    Emerging market corporate debt
    The emerging market corporate debt market is large, with a rapidly growing number of issuers, and most outstanding debt is rated investment grade. Yields are generally higher than for comparable developed market credits, presenting potential opportunities for investors.

    Our emerging market corporate debt strategy takes a total return approach, dynamically allocating across the emerging market corporate high yield and investment grade spectrum, with active management through the interest rate and credit cycle.

    Securities are selected utilising Insight’s rigorous credit research process, drawing upon fundamental country evaluation to focus on those companies underpinned by stable or improving economic conditions in their core business markets.
