Overview

CLIENT COMMITMENT

This benchmark-agnostic fund has the flexibility to invest across global fixed income markets. The Fund has latitude to act on high-conviction ideas and seeks to achieve positive absolute returns in a variety of market environments.

WHY INVEST IN THE PORTFOLIO

Experienced Investors
The investment team focuses on managing strategies with absolute return targets and an emphasis on capital preservation. The team has managed unconstrained, absolute return portfolios through marked periods of extreme volatility and stress.

Investment Flexibility
The Fund invests broadly across global fixed income markets and is not constrained by benchmark-specific guidelines. This latitude allows us to fully express our high-conviction, active views and potentially avoid benchmark biases.

Uncorrelated Sources of Return
This bond fund seeks to provide positive long-term returns through a combination of top-down and bottom-up investing. The result is a predominantly investment grade, absolute return-oriented global credit portfolio that is intended to provide diversification from traditional and non-traditional asset classes.
