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.
