Integrated Research Platform

With the number of securities across the major bond indices in the thousands, we believe that a broad and deep research platform is crucial to identify and evaluate investment opportunities. Our integrated approach combines fundamental and quantitative analysis. Fundamental research gets us up close to bond issuers, while quantitative insights give us an objective and systematic way to evaluate them. Our disciplined investment process combines these insights to help us identify our highest conviction opportunities.

Philosophy

From an expansive global platform, we apply an integrated combination of quantitative and fundamental research - through a process that takes risk in a dynamic and managed way.

 

Investment Range

Developed Markets

We provide a range of strategies focused on fixed income opportunities in the US, Europe and Asia.

Emerging Markets

Our active, benchmark-agnostic approach encompasses government and corporate emerging market debt—and bonds issued in both hard and local currencies.

Global

We offer a range of global bond strategies which encompass core bond solutions, more unconstrained "go anywhere" approaches and strategies that specifically target higher levels of income.

High Income

We regard ourselves as pioneers in income-oriented investing—we have decades of experience in investing in higher-income bonds, including high-yield corporate bonds, emerging market debt and securitised assets. There is a trade-off for these bonds' higher income potential—greater volatility and higher default risks. We believe our disciplined research process helps us strike the right balance between risk and return.

Experience

Our global team of fixed-income experts includes nearly 124* dedicated investment professionals—a unique and dynamic mix of seasoned portfolio managers, analysts, and economists who collaborate in real time, through a 24/7 network.
