Apr 1, 2022

We believe that active management has an important role to play in investment portfolios. Here, we highlight 10 reasons, each supported by a chart, to demonstrate why we believe active management can be desirable when investing in fixed income.

The first five reasons explore some of the inherent drawbacks that can potentially exist within indices and by extension portfolios that passively track an index. The second five reasons look at some of the distinct alpha opportunities that can exist within fixed income markets.

  • The importance of the new issues market and the idiosyncrasies of the over-the-counter (OTC) market.
