U.S. Credit Focus

We believe superior risk-adjusted performance is delivered through an intense focus on finding high quality, well-underwritten bonds with competitive income advantage. We are benchmark aware vs. benchmark centric. This gives us the flexibility to focus on absolute returns and less efficient sectors of the market. Risk management is integral to all aspects of portfolio construction and ongoing investment management. The strategy seeks to maximize investment income, preserve capital and ensure appropriate levels of liquidity while simultaneously maximizing total return. These goals are achieved through fundamental credit research combined with a rigorous focus on relative value.
