Our global convertible bond funds are sub-investment managed by Westwood Management Corp.
We believe that the active management of convertibles is best achieved by a dedicated, specialist team that has the experience to exploit the many inefficiencies that are inherent in the market. The team adopts both a top-down and fundamentally driven, bottom-up approach with the flexibility to invest across a global opportunity set to help capture these inefficiencies and pricing anomalies.
As a liquid alternative, our convertibles-based strategies can have numerous advantages when included in a balanced portfolio.
