Our actively-managed core fixed income strategy seeks to maximize risk-adjusted excess returns with controlled volatility providing investors with potential for enhanced returns and we believe, a more stable investment option than a passively-managed core strategy.

It aims to offer investors a diversified, risk-controlled approach to gain broad market fixed income exposure. We believe this can also serve as a stabilizing influence when added to riskier assets, such as equities, at the overall portfolio level.

Potential benefits

Active management: US core fixed income strategy is designed to offer broad market exposure and higher risk-adjusted returns, rather than passive approaches.

Characterisitics: stabilizing characteristics at overall portfolio level.

Broad and diversified exposure: the average credit quality is AA.

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