About Short Maturity Fixed Income

The strategy, managed by a team with deep experience investing together through multiple market cycles, utilizes the full breadth of the firm’s fundamental research capabilities to identify companies across the market cap spectrum in order to exploit inefficiencies resulting in a differentiated portfolio.

Investment Process

Investment Objective:

Seeks to outperform the Bloomberg Barclays 1-3 Year Government/Credit Index over a full market cycle.

Investment Overview:

We believe markets are inefficient, and that these inefficiencies can best be exploited through adherence to a valuation centric investment process dedicated to the selection of short-term investment grade securities on a bottom-up basis. Our team focuses primarily on fundamental securities analysis to maximize the yield advantage from undervalued bonds and structured products in order to achieve a total return and avoid the risk of negative annual returns.
