The ISG decides the asset allocation for aggregate and multi-asset fixed income portfolios, allocating the risk budget across different investment areas, with a view to maximising reward per unit of risk, and determines the optimal implementation of these investment views against different benchmarks.
The Cash-flow Driven Investment and Multi Asset Credit Strategies are managed by the Secured Credit desk.
Our Institutional Absolute Return Bond Strategy is managed by our fixed income Investment Strategy Group (ISG) and offers pension schemes the opportunity to capture a broad range of return opportunities from fixed income markets, while maintaining a focus on capital preservation.
As yields fall and cash-flow needs become greater, appropriate use of assets to combat negative cash flows within defined benefit (DB) schemes becomes increasingly important. While there are a number of options potentially available, we believe a cash-flow, rather than income-focused approach can help pension schemes manage their shorter dated liabilities.
Our Diversified Credit strategy is managed by our fixed income Investment Strategy Group (ISG) and provides clients with exposure to a diversified portfolio of global credit opportunities.
Our High Alpha funds are designed to enable clients to exploit a broad range of the very best global fixed income opportunities against their desired benchmark (credit, gilts or aggregate).
Our Multi Asset Credit strategy, which is managed by Colin Fleury and David Milward, provides investors with an opportunity to invest in a range of predominantly secured credit asset classes, not typically found in traditional fixed income portfolios.
The Total Return Bond strategy is managed by the fixed income Investment Strategy Group (ISG) and offers pension schemes the opportunity to capture a broad range of return opportunities from across global fixed income markets, without the constraints of a traditional index benchmark.
