Fixed income

Find income with our actively managed strategies, run by our experienced fixed income teams.

Investors rely on bonds for repeatable income, predictability of returns and downside protection.

With over $128 trillion of bonds outstanding globally issued by governments, companies and other borrowers, what fixed income offers investors is flexibility. Long or short maturity, investment grade or high yield, developed or emerging markets, senior or subordinated – investors can calibrate any level of risk-return they require from bonds.

Get active

Your goals are best served by a manager who shares your responsibilities. The way we see it, active management provides a compass across the almost endless sea of fixed income choices.

We offer you a choice of risk-return profiles, each supported by a consistent investment philosophy and process. Investment profiles range from offering attractive yields with a focus on capital preservation for conservative investors, through to higher returns from dynamic research-driven strategies where price discipline can lift returns without sacrificing credit quality.
