Philosophy

The right strategy, at the right time and the right price.

We believe in pursuing an active, multi-strategy fixed income approach that applies the right strategy, at the right time, and at the right price. We believe this allows us the tactical flexibility to benefit through all market conditions, and produce superior risk-adjusted returns over time.

Process

We actively manage our fixed income portfolios, using a combination of fundamental and technical analysis. Our multi-strategy approach aims to add value by targeting duration management, sector allocation and security selection. Fundamental analysis seeks to identify the current stage of the interest rate and credit cycle by examining economic and monetary conditions. This outlook sets the bias for interest rate, yield curve and credit positioning. Technical analysis examines the supply and demand factors that are barometers of investor sentiment, allowing us to appropriately scale risk around our fundamental bias.
