Our strategies

Absolute return bonds

As fixed income markets change, many investors are struggling to balance the need for growth with the need to minimise downside risk. Our absolute return bond funds look to capture our 'best ideas' and aim to provide attractive returns in all market conditions.

Our aggregate bond portfolios have the flexibility to invest where they see the best opportunities across fixed income markets. Our dynamic market allocation approach looks to exploit opportunities in government and corporate bonds as well as more specialist investments.

Asset-backed securities

Investing in a portfolio of asset-backed securities (ABS) provides exposure to an asset class with a potentially attractive risk/reward profile. Our experienced team invests in a wide range of asset-backed bonds that benefit from a diversified pool of underlying collateral with strong investor covenants.

Buy and maintain

Our buy and maintain strategy offers a smarter way to access global credit market beta relative to traditional passive approaches. We invest in a diversified portfolio of global issuers with strong credit quality based on long-term fundamentals, placing limits on exposure to ensure our portfolios are not over-exposed to the most indebted companies or industries.

Efficient Beta

Our efficient beta strategies aim to harvest returns by exploiting systematic and structural market inefficiencies which are often ignored by other managers as a result of high trading costs and the inability to source certain bonds in illiquid segments of the global fixed income market.

Emerging market debt

We have designed a range of emerging market debt capabilities that offer investors structural exposure to emerging markets across the full universe with varying degrees of alpha exposure. Investors can access the opportunity set according to their risk/return preferences, tapping into attractive beta as well as alpha opportunities.

Global credit

Investing in global credit portfolios can provide additional diversification against potentially divergent economic, interest rate and political risk. It can also deliver more opportunities for active funds to outperform. Our strategies take advantage of Insight's global credit resource and expertise across fixed income.

Government debt is one of our longest-running asset classes, and we invest in bonds issued in both developed and developing markets. Our team has in-depth experience and global expertise in this area, which we draw on to analyse and compare securities.

High yield

Sub-investment grade debt markets can offer the prospect of higher yields than investment grade markets for higher credit risks. At Insight, we emphasise a short-dated approach to high yield which has the potential to lower credit risks and volatility while retaining higher yields than investment grade markets. Short-dated high yield offers little in the way of interest rate risks and is more influenced by prevailing economic conditions.

Senior loans can be a potentially efficient source of attractive risk-adjusted returns. They can offer security and floating rate returns and higher yields than investment grade credit in a low-yielding fixed income environment.

Municipal bonds

Our municipal bond strategies seek to deliver a relatively high level of income and excess total return from actively managing portfolios of tax-exempt and taxable municipal bonds.
