We believe a fundamentally driven, corporate and sovereign investment process can generate risk-adjusted outperformance and capital preservation over time. Our comprehensive, bottom-up view complements traditional top-down decision making, seeking to provide a sustainable competitive advantage.

Investment Approach

1 Dynamic Core Global Bond Holding: The portfolio emphasizes risk-adjusted returns and capital preservation while seeking to identify the best opportunities across fixed income sectors globally. The strategy uses a bottom-up, fundamentally driven investment process.
2 Integrated Research: Partnership and fluid communication between fixed income and equity analysts promote idea generation. Credit research emphasizes free cash flow generation, quality of management and security valuation.
3 Sophisticated Risk Management: Our proprietary fixed income portfolio and risk-management system, Quantum Global, is integrated into the investment process at each step. We identify and measure the sources of risk in the portfolio at multiple levels to confirm that the portfolio is positioned as intended.

Performance

Past performance cannot guarantee future results. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal and fluctuation of value. Returns greater than one year are annualized. Returns are expressed in U.S. dollars. Composite returns are net of transaction costs and gross of non-reclaimable withholding taxes, if any, and reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings.

The gross performance results presented do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees and returns will be reduced by such advisory fees and other contractual expenses as described in the individual contract and Form ADV Part 2A.

Net performance results do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees actually charged to the accounts in the composite but they do reflect the deduction of model investment advisory fees based on the maximum fixed fee rate in effect for the respective time period. Actual advisory fees may vary among clients invested in the strategy shown and may be higher or lower than model advisory fees. Composites may include accounts with performance-based fees. Returns for each client will be reduced by such fees and expenses as negotiated in any client contract as discussed in Form ADV Part 2A.
