Fixed Income

What are Fixed Income Funds?

A fixed income fund is a fund that invests primarily in bonds or other debt securities. Fixed income funds generally seek to pay a distribution on a fixed schedule, though the payment amount is not guaranteed, may vary, and may be zero. Investors may consider this type of fund for its potential for income generation and capital preservation.

Our Approach to Fixed Income Funds

We believe global fixed income markets are inefficient. In our view, the best way to seek to exploit these inefficiencies is through a sector-by-sector research-oriented approach, which is integrated globally. We offer investors a wide range of strategies covering benchmark-aware and unconstrained to tailor portfolios that seek to meet a diverse set of client needs.

Emphasize Independent ResearchUtilize Multiple Research PerspectivesCommit to the Long Term
We focus on sectors where we believe our independent research offers the greatest opportunities to add value for our clients. We believe fixed income portfolios can best be managed by integrating three perspectives: top-down macro analysis, bottom-up sector analysis and quantitative insights to guide strategy allocations. We take a long-term view for all we do, from the people we hire, to the markets we enter, to the solutions we offer and to the investment decisions we make.
