Depth of credit research

The US Investment Grade bond universe is broad and because of this, we believe, increases the need for careful credit research.

We are focused on credit selection and so the investment process needs to be one of teamwork with everyone contributing and challenging investment ideas.  This credit-intensive approach should lead to outperformance over the long term, mainly from security selection and sector rotation.

Alongside this, our IG investment team works closely with our market-leading US High Yield team to identify potential rising star opportunities. This crossover strategy also benefits from the expertise of our IG analysts, many of whom have prior experience covering high yield credits.

INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

Fixed Income

We cover a broad spectrum of fixed income strategies to help investors build diverse portfolios that can be more resilient to economic and market shifts.

Results-orientated approach

We believe that a steady income stream drives returns and have observed that this investment philosophy translates into consistent results over the long term.

We apply our philosophy within a robust and repeatable investment process which incorporates strong bottom-up security selection with a true top-down driven approach to portfolio construction.

Funds

US Corporate Bonds Intermediate
