Investment Overview

Our team-based approach integrates our relative value philosophy, risk budgeting framework and fundamental security analysis.
Leverages broader fixed income platform resources for fundamental research, quantitative analysis, risk management and trading
We seek to gain from the credit-risk premium while emphasizing loss avoidance.
Our process combines top-down macro assessment with bottom-up fundamental analysis, targeting active risks to sector allocations, security selection and interest rate management.
The strategy has historically generated competitive relative risk-adjusted performance as well as low excess return correlation with most other core managers.*
