As an experienced fixed income manager, we know that the best strategy is one that meets your needs. Our fixed income strategies follow a conservative investment philosophy that doesn’t involve leverage, derivatives or currency trading. Rather, we use research and analysis bolstered by our trading and risk management experience, to identify strategies that offer the most value for the risk taken.
With teams in the United States, Europe and Asia, our global presence gives you access to a full spectrum of fixed income issuers and securities:
Cash Management. From money market funds to custom cash strategies, we can help you manage cash by aligning your strategy with your risk, liquidity and return criteria.
Ultra-Short. For investors interested in maximizing income while maintaining reasonable liquidity, our ultra-short strategies invest in high quality, liquid investments with durations ranging from overnight to five years.
Core and Core Plus. For investors seeking active management that uses fundamental research and risk management to identify strategies against a variety of benchmarks along the interest rate and credit curves for longer-term exposure to investment- and noninvestment-grade bonds (3 to 15 years).
High Yield. If you are a more aggressive investor interested in higher current income with the potential for capital appreciation, high-yield (lower rated) corporate bonds may be an appropriate choice.
Index Management. Investors seeking low-cost, risk-efficient market exposure appreciate our global index management solutions. Our experts can help you identify the appropriate investment strategies across a range of global markets and benchmarks.
Municipals. For investors interested in managing their tax burden, we offer actively managed, relative-value style municipal bond management.
