Fixed income

Fixed income securities or bonds play a vital role in a portfolio, providing an important source of capital stability, income, liquidity and diversification. Our research shows institutions invest between 13 and 34% of their portfolios in fixed income1.

Fixed income is a broad asset class, spanning the risk and return spectrum, from government bonds to corporate bonds and hybrid investments. Skilled managers tailor investments to meet clients’ individual investment requirements.

Fixed income provides:

  • An important source of capital stability
  • The potential for regular income
  • Portfolio diversification benefits from low correlations to riskier assets

Philosophy and process

Investment philosophy

Investment philosophy

We believe asset knowledge and an independent valuation-driven approach to fixed income investing can generate outstanding investment outcomes. Prices can overshoot valuations in fixed income markets. This is where the real opportunity lies. Our philosophy is based on exploiting mispriced opportunities through a disciplined valuation approach and a repeatable process.

Investment process

Investment process

Our detailed research means every investment decision is analysed from a local and global context. Our valuation-driven approach includes an innovative company credit rating system at its core. The fixed income team also benefits from the diverse perspectives of the economics, real estate, infrastructure, equities and environmental, social and governance research teams.

Team

The team of over 25 investment professionals2 covers the entire fixed income spectrum across corporate and sovereign bonds, cash, currency and derivatives.
