Targeting the sweet spot of Absolute return bonds

Absolute Return

Low yields, concerns about rising inflation and the desire to increase diversification are causing investors to look beyond traditional index-based products for their fixed income portfolio. Absolute return bond fixed income strategies can provide a robust solution.

Our absolute return strategies aim to deliver positive outcomes in a range of market conditions. We implement a flexible approach blending top-down strategic positioning with bottom-up fundamental based investment. Expertise is drawn from right across our fixed income capabilities with risk management hard-wired into our process at every stage.

 

Risk Disclaimer

The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up as a result of market or currency movements and investors may not get back the original amount invested.

 

 

Our approach to absolute return fixed income is unconstrained and has a clear focus: the delivery of stable returns having a different profile to that of global bond markets. To do this we focus on:

 

  • Diversified return sources
  • Consistent absolute returns
  • Disciplined risk management
  • Liquidity
  • Varied sources of value
  • High conviction
  • Use of derivatives for alpha generation and hedging

 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Stock market and currency movements mean the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
