We believe the best fixed income outcomes come from the combination of the keenest minds and the most comprehensive resources. Our 278 specialist investment professionals*, across sectors and markets, share their knowledge and insights to help our clients build stronger portfolios.
A shared global research language
Every investment decision is assessed in-house, through our Fundamental, Quantitative, and Technical (FQT) analysis. This FQT research language allows us to analyse and compare individual securities, sectors and markets, ensuring only the best ideas are implemented in portfolios.
Fundamental factors include macroeconomic data (such as growth and inflation) as well as corporate health numbers (such as default rates, earnings and leverage metrics)
Quantitative valuation is a measure of the extent to which a sector or security is pricey or cheap (on both an absolute basis as well as versus history and relative to other sectors)
Technical factors are primarily supply and demand dynamics (issuance and flows), as well as investor positioning and momentum
Integrated, multi-layered risk management
Multi-dimensional risk management is embedded at every stage of our investment process. Portfolio managers have ultimate responsibility for investment risk, with an embedded risk management function and an independent risk team providing additional layers of oversight.
The portfolio risk management process includes an effort to monitor and manage risk, but does not imply low risk.
