Multi-Sector Absolute Return
Search for Yield in a Low Interest Rate Environment
Institutional investors around the globe are challenged to find income to reach investment and spending targets, without taking on undue risk. Our Multi-Sector Absolute Return Strategy is an actively managed response for investing in a low yield environment.
The strategy allows us the flexibility to actively use and rotate among fixed income sectors (including U.S. investment grade, high yield bond, leveraged loans and non-U.S. bonds), taking advantage of relative value to enhance portfolio yield, while avoiding risks associated with using only one sector. The allocation decision and review is based on an analysis of macroeconomic and microeconomic themes and an assessment of the relative value of each sector.
