Investment Grade – Quarterly update – April 2021
As stewards of your capital for more than thirty years, we provide portfolios driven by pragmatic investment choices. Our experienced fixed income teams manage assets to support a broad selection of investor needs. All of our fixed income approaches are actively managed. All are based on fundamental research. All are long only. Some offer currency hedging.
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 – many of which hold much more risk than their prices imply.
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.
Our approaches are developed to suit the needs of our clients with a variety of active investment approaches covering the range of fixed income asset classes. We offer regional and global coverage. All of our teams are active managers at the core and we aim to deliver a choice of return profiles based on fundamentals.
Both our Fixed Income and TwentyFour Asset Management boutiques offer global exposure. We cover asset classes including sovereign and corporate bonds, convertible bonds, and inflation linked bonds. We offer both single asset class and blended portfolios, with return profiles ranging from low-risk, investment-grade bonds through to high-yield corporate bonds.
As bottom-up research driven investors, we offer access to both the higher rates and pricing inefficiencies on offer in emerging markets. Our Fixed Income boutique offers investment exposure to corporate bond portfolios, sovereign bond portfolios, and blended bond strategies – in both local and hard currencies.
The market-leading ABS team of TwentyFour Asset Management aims to deliver attractive income along with a focus on capital preservation. The approach is primarily exposed to European assets and is managed by a highly experienced team based in London.
Active investing and stewardship of your investments requires high conviction. Conviction through research, discipline, and experience.
An investment philosophy is a compass that guides you towards your goal. Over the years, we have developed our investment philosophies to match a range of client needs.
We believe investment philosophies need to be executed consistently through the cycle to offer you a better understanding of what returns you should expect as the markets and rates move.
