Aggregate fixed income

Robeco’s Aggregate Fixed Income strategy adheres to a systematic investment approach. Strategic decisions on both fixed income asset allocation and duration positioning are the main performance drivers in use, with tactical strategies used for diversification purposes. The strategy is well resourced in terms of investment professionals and builds on Robeco’s long history in fixed income investing, dating back to 1974.

Aggregate fixed income

Robeco’s aggregate fixed income strategies use a consistent and disciplined investment approach, mainly based on strategic asset and duration allocations over a wide range of fixed income asset classes.

The first step involves strategic asset allocation. The investment team follows a top down process to decide on long-term asset allocations and duration targets. Decision making is based on a formalized analysis framework, using valuation, momentum and the business cycle as dominant input factors. Asset classes involved are government bonds, credits, high yield bonds, asset-backed securities and emerging markets debt. Duration targets are set by comparing treasury yields to long term GDP growth expectations.

Secondly, tactical asset-class specific strategies are implemented for diversification purposes at the direction of Robeco’s specialized fixed income teams. The risk budget allocated to the different strategies depends on conviction level and market conditions. As a result the portfolio is to benefit from the deepest possible asset class knowledge.

Highlights:
  • A systematic investment approach focused on strategic allocation
  • Freedom to allocate to any fixed income asset class, dependent on its relative attractiveness
  • Focus on both absolute and relative risks
  • Highly experienced and stable team of investment professionals
  • Long and proven track record in managing fixed income
