Debt Strategy

A compelling long-term alternative to core credit fixed income investments

Overview

• While being benchmark-aware, the strategy has the flexibility to invest beyond the benchmark to enhance potential returns and minimise risk over the medium to long term.

• Bond and currency decision making is separated, leveraging the expertise of our fixed income and currency experts.

• Idea generation is supported by our global macroeconomic research

Investment approach

Our process blends a top-down global macro perspective, with a tactical, bottom-up approach that selects better risk-reward portfolio constituents within the universe that fits the global macro views.

Our research aims to identify those global factors across currency, business and policy cycles that we believe are the major determinants for the emerging markets risk appetite, which ultimately define the appropriate relative exposure in terms of global duration and FX exposure for the strategy. The portfolio construction is based on a 3-pillars approach.
