Multi-Sector Fixed Income

Our Multi-Sector Fixed Income strategy seeks to outperform the broad fixed income market by investing in U.S. investment grade bonds, supplemented with U.S. high yield bonds, emerging market debt sovereign and corporate securities, and international currency and bonds in both established and emerging markets. Additionally, we view other spread sectors (CMBS, ABS, non-Agency) as providing a further opportunity set for the portfolio management team.
