Emerging Market Debt

Our Emerging Market Debt strategy seeks to exploit market inefficiencies through generating returns from country, credit, and currency exposure. The strategy focuses on global relative value across the credit spectrum and utilizes both U.S. Dollar and Non-Dollar securities. We apply a blended approach that allows for dynamic allocations and effective allocation of capital.
