Aggregate fixed income

Aggregate fixed income

Dynamic and flexible fundamentally managed global fixed income strategy

Key points:

  • Flexibility to exploit opportunities across the global fixed income universe 
  • Integrated ESG approach to country and issuer selection 
  • A strict focus on risk management resulting in limited drawdowns and low volatility

Philosophy

There is considerable divergence in performance between the various segments of the fixed income universe over time; a winner one year is often a laggard the next. The strategy’s overarching investment philosophy is based on the premise that these wide performance discrepancies represent opportunities that dynamic investors can exploit, because global fixed income markets and benchmarks are inefficient. In our view it is vital to invest across these markets according to a flexible, benchmark-unaware approach.

Process

The strategy’s investment process consists of four steps.
Step 1: Analysis. Top-down global macroeconomic analysis and research into market themes and bottom-up country and company research, which includes ESG analysis.
Step 2: Cross-asset fixed income strategy selection. Selection and duration positioning, country, yield curve and currency positioning, and issuer selection.
Step 3: Portfolio construction and risk management. Risk & reward analysis and portfolio construction.
Step 4: Implementation. Efficient execution of trades. In addition to the global strategy, a European aggregate fixed income variant is also available.
