An integrated team-based approach
Alpha from diversified sources

Employing a relative value framework, we believe value can be captured at the cross section of top-down and bottom-up disciplines, across sector, security and yield curve positioning.

Nimble with a singular focus

Our team’s culture and size affords us access, flexibility and real-time execution.

Transparent portfolio construction

We focus on cash securities and avoid leverage, shorting and credit derivatives with an aim to generate alpha from security selection. The result is a high level of portfolio conviction and transparency to investors.
