Our approach

Our long-term, fundamentally driven investment process seeks to build focused portfolios underpinned by in-depth research with full consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk factors and robust portfolio construction to enhance long-term value.

Fundamentally driven

Investment ideas are driven by in-depth research across regions and sectors, supported by multi-disciplinary teams across asset classes to deliver robust client outcomes.

Robust portfolio construction

We believe credit benchmarks are flawed in their design. Instead, we create custom sectors drawn from multiple perspectives to help generate outperformance, regardless of the direction of credit spreads.

Sustainability as a bedrock

We embed environmental, social and governance considerations into every investment decision and actively engage with issuers to drive positive change.

Potential benefits

Focused portfolios

Aggregating firm-wide expertise to gain a holistic picture of the issuers we invest in.

Resilient risk-adjusted returns

Active management of credit risk to deliver consistent performance and lower correlation to other managers.

ESG integrated portfolios

Taking ESG considerations into account throughout our investment process results in more robust portfolios that we believe will lead to better client outcomes.

Key risks

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Credit risk

Bond values are affected by changes in interest rates and the bond issuer's creditworthiness. Bonds that offer the potential for a higher income typically have a greater risk of default.
