Liability-Driven Investing

The Global Liability Driven Investment Solutions Group’s services are designed to provide institutional clients with best-in-class solutions from standard long duration index based mandates to high customized liability-driven strategies.

Where we are managing standard index based mandates our philosophy focuses on trying to maximize alpha with the least amount of risk. When trying to mimic a liability in a custom liability-driven strategy, our philosophy focuses on minimizing any deviation away from the strategic liability hedging benchmark.

Our philosophy includes both top-down and bottom-up investment styles. Each of these styles will vary depending on client requirements and market cycles and it also will depend on the portfolio manager’s view on markets and individual security valuations and opportunities.

Stable Value

Stable Value Bond strategies are a conservative investment option offered predominantly in defined contribution plans. These strategies are suitable for investors seeking a higher yield than cash or for those who wish to maintain a relatively modest risk profile. They are also suitable for fixed income investors who seek diversification from a multi-sector strategy focused on income.

Tax-Aware Strategies

Our Tax-Aware strategies seek current income exempt from federal income taxes by investing primarily in municipal securities. Potential issuers of municipal bonds include states, cities, counties, redevelopment agencies, special-purpose districts, school districts, public utility districts, publicly owned airports and seaports, and any other governmental entity at or below the state level. Municipal bonds may be general obligations of the issuer or secured by specified revenues.
