Investing in Fixed Income
We are a global fixed income investment manager operating with the strength of local “on-the-ground” teams, who systematically share views and investment ideas across a range of fixed income, credit, cash and high yield strategies in developed and emerging markets.
Our global advantage
While our various fixed income teams utilise distinct and independent investment processes, our 50+ investment experts located globally can nimbly work together to bring locally generated investment ideas to our global portfolios.
Active credit research
Our global credit research team supports our entire global fixed income and credit business. Thorough credit research is the building block for our investment processes and the global team is an integral component in the success of our investment strategies.
ESG & climate change
We find that companies and governments that manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks poorly typically manage other risks poorly. While it can be challenging to integrate ESG factors into fixed income investing – we strive to systematically consider ESG factors as part of our investment process.
We go beyond the limits of most credit analysis
For more than two decades, we have managed global credit portfolios through economic cycles and fluctuating market conditions. All holdings undergo comprehensive analysis to help minimise investment risk, including ESG risks facing individual issuers.
Global Fixed Income
Achieve deeper diversification in the most defensive part of a portfolio
We cover a broad spectrum of investment grade and high yield sovereign and corporate bonds in developed and emerging markets. This enables portfolio managers to construct diverse, efficient portfolios that are better able to meet clients’ investment objectives.
High Yield Fixed Income
Invest in bonds that offer higher return potential than most fixed income
With an average of 14 years’ experience in high yield investing, our portfolio managers bring a deep foundation in risk control to portfolios that aim to deliver lower downside volatility than the overall market and superior returns over a full market cycle.
