Absolute Return

Our ability to allocate among the broad credit fixed income markets globally has been a pivotal component of achieving what we believe to be attractive risk-adjusted returns in our absolute return credit portfolios. We believe that this success stems from balancing our strategic long-term view whilst maintaining tactical flexibility underpinned by our rigorous fundamental credit research process.

In addition to the attractive income flows from higher-yielding bonds, the corporate debt market offers investment opportunities arising from bond price idiosyncrasies. Bond mis-pricing can be due to market distortions or inefficiencies, or to a lack of sophisticated credit modelling and analytical capabilities on the part of investors. Our research process seeks to identify mis-priced bonds for further analysis.

Each absolute return strategy is available to investors either through pooled funds or segregated accounts. Segregated accounts can be customized to an investor’s particular risk profile.
