    Core

    Core

    Plain ‘vanilla’ assets such as Agency MBS or credit card and auto loan ABS. Many institutions have exposure to these large liquid markets through Core and Core Plus fixed income allocations.

    Alternative

    Alternative

    Includes sectors such as middle-market CLOs and commercial real estate CLOs, which are popular with some sophisticated investors, in addition to non-US securitized markets like European CLOs, which in our opinion are largely ignored.

    Esoteric

    Esoteric

    Investors have the least exposure to esoterics which is a small, complex and hard to access part of the market. We also see untapped potential.

    Leverage Insight’s global capability, specialism and experience across each market segment to fine tune a strategy built to your specifications.

    Meet some of our team

    Insight’s global structured credit team is highly experienced at originating, sourcing, modeling, analyzing and investing across each of the core, alternative and esoteric markets.
